Today 60 young people are judged in the audience for protests outside the Mejía school. The possible scenarios to be presented today at the adjudication hearing are the invalidation, conciliation and litigation.
The invalidation in this case could be declared if lawyers Gonzalo Realpe and Julio César Sarango successfully demonstrate that the arrest was void because the young people were abused and detained in a police station for eight hours.
The second strategy would be reconciliation. This could occur if the affected ones for the destroyed property in the protests accept a deal with detainees (which could be, the payment of the damage, public apologies, community service, etc). Thus, his case would be filed and they will be put into liberty.
The litigation is the judgment. This option implies that the prosecutor handling the case, Javier Bosquez, must prove that those arrested committed the offense stated in the Integral Criminal Code on another’s property damage, and as a result of that the paralysis in public or private services.
Among the currently presented evidence by the attorney against the youth are photographies and the results of the analysis of human recognition. If verified this fact, they could be sentenced from one to three years in prison.
