Neither the aggressors nor the assaulted appear publicly, after the social networks viralized on Monday, August 6, the video of an act of violence that took place on Sunday afternoon at a security checkpoint in the Las Cumbres urbanization.
“What my lawyer says, is what fits me,” said to EXPRESO, via cell phone, Freddy Soria Cano, one of the two security guards who would have received the attack. The other was Eduardo Santana.
Who did appear yesterday afternoon was the defense attorney of Soria and Santana, who offered a press conference and issued a newsletter. Steven Reyes, a professional linked to the law firm Ulloa & Asociados, said that the agreement between the parties could have been made within the framework of what was considered an aggression and was classified as a violation. “However, by reviewing the video, you may come to consider that it would be a felony.” Faced with this, the possible agreement between the parties would be without effect.
Jimmy Salazar, president of the Guayas Bar Association, argues that the video would not be enough to determine the damages and sequelae of the assault, “but the medical assessment; and it is the expert, the medical examiner, who has made an analysis, has evaluated and gives an injury that does not exceed three days, and having an injury that does not exceed three days, there is no better than a contravention”.
Salazar suggests that, in case of not agreeing with the doctor’s assessment, the person who is affected may request that another medical body, another specialist, review it.
At the same time, the Office of the Prosecutor of Guayas, officially initiated an investigation against two officials of the institution for their actions in the Flagrance Unit, to where Sunday night Soria appeared, who would have received the greatest number of blows.
Edmundo Briones, prosecutor of Guayas and Galápagos, requested a written report from Marco E., and the medical expert Daysi T., who were on duty in the unit and learned details of the incidents.
Once the report is received, the Provincial Prosecutor of Guayas will send this documentation to the Procedural Management Unit of the State Attorney General’s Office, with the purpose of analyzing the case and taking the corresponding resolution.
Nor was it possible to obtain a version from the urbanization administrators. However, by yesterday night the neighbors had been summoned to define a position in front of the fact.
What was denied is that the three aggressors -members of the same family- reside in Las Cumbres, although they do enter through the gate of this urbanization, as there is a deal with the administration of Ceibos Norte to facilitate the passage of residents.
EXPRESO tried to contact the family involved in the aggression, but it was impossible. However, in an audio that is attributed to the wife of one of those involved, it is claimed that the guard had insulted and invited him to fight, and “when my children saw what was happening and their father was bleeding, they defended him, as any son would do with his father, a man of almost 60 years.”
“In spite of that,” the audio continues, “a conciliation was made in which it was settled by the two parties, it was compensated and it was committed to pay the damages of the sentry box”. RGS, KSG
“The guards should not confront”
The security protocols are similar in closed urbanizations. The resident who is up to date with the payment of the aliquots can enter through the automatic doors, and the one who does not, does it through the visitors, and submits to the review process. In Puerto Seymour, the chairman of the board, Guillermo Ayala, explains that with two months of default, the automatic entry is deactivated, and the guards cannot give explanations of that situation. “They cannot get to discuss or explain why the sticker has been disabled. Nor can they reach a confrontation with any resident. In case you have a spoiled person, you should call the police. “
He coincides with Reynaldo Cañizares, former president of the Puerto Azul citadel, who indicates that the guards of his citadel can never enter a point of confrontation that puts them in a risky situation and, in case of any aggression of any kind, verbal or physical, the guard can file a complaint “and we would back it up, as long as the guard remains in the condition of victim”.
For Fabián Durán, of the security commission of the Laguna Club board, the first thing is the training in human relations of the guards, since “it is very difficult to deal with owners who in some cases feel injured in their income”. To this is added the communication that must exist between the administration of the urbanization and the residents, so that they are aware of the measures that are adopted in the citadel. KSG
It is located in the area of Los Ceibos. It occupies an area of 426 thousand square meters. It adjoins the Santa Cecilia, Ceibos Norte and Mapasingue Oeste urbanizations. The aggressed guard Fredy Soria Cano is 35 years old, he is from Quevedo and for five years he has worked as a security guard in the Las Cumbres urbanization. He is one of the nine employees that fulfill this type of service in the citadel. (I)
