MALAGON PINZON, Miguel. EL RÉGIMEN DE LOS INTENDENTES EN LA CONSTITUCIÓN DE CÚCUTA DE 1821: UN MODELO DE ADMINISTRACIÓN POLICIAL EN EL ESTADO REPUBLICANO. Rev. Derecho [online]. 2008, n.30, pp. 114-140. ISSN 0121-8697.
This article displays an unexplored subject in the history of the Colombian administrative law. This is the application of the Intendancies regime in the Constitution of 1821. The Intendants were part of Science of the Police, that is to say, the Management in the Absolute State. These were agents of the central power and had the authority to administer justice and to govern, among others. During the period of Spanish domination they did not have any use in New Granada, but by express disposition of the legislation that developed the Constitution of Cucuta they prevailed in our country. That is to say, that Colombia applied one of the postulates of absolutism in the beginnings of the Republic. On the other hand, this article also examines the application of the of XVIII century Spanish Corregidores Decree on the Constitution of 1821. In short, these institutions help us to explain that the sources of our Administrative Law is not exclusively French, but it has been nourished from diverse countries, like Spain in these specific cases.
