The Second Criminal Judicial Courtroom will analyze the requests for appeal and nullity of the sentence of three years imprisonment for directors and former director of Opinion of newspaper El Universo. The sentence also includes $ 40 million compensation for president Rafael Correa.
Both parties were present today at the courtroom. This room is currently made up of judges Primo Díaz Garaicoa and Eduardo Guerrero Mórtola. Until yesterday also Juan Carrión Maldonado was part of the judges to be in charge of the case, but he was dismissed by the Judicial Council of Transition, so the agency must decide on his replacement.
