Yesterday the Prosecution’s Office, the Comptroller and the State’s Attorney asked the Criminal Chamber of the National Court of Justice (CNJ) to discard, for being irrelevant, the request for nullity brought by the defense of the former Minister of Sports, Raul Carrion, in one of the twelve processes he currently faces for alleged irregularities committed in the exercise of his position.
The request was exposed during the revocation hearing chaired conducted by national judge Richard Villagomez, who postponed the resolution of this application, without giving a date of when would the ruling be public.
Carrion’s defense sought to derogate the resolution of national judge Wilson Merino, who called Carrion for trial for the alleged crime of attenuated embezzlement.
Carrion faces six criminal charges for embezzlement, which now, are in the intermediate stage with resolutions for trial summons or preliminary hearing to trial. Six others are in the prosecution process; some on the investigative phase of fiscal instruction and other are on preliminary investigation.
