The presiding judge of the 2nd Court of Criminal Proceedings, Mercy Pico, granted freedom to Balerio Estacio by an injunction. Pico replaced the prison custody for a liberty writ this Friday to the neighborhood leader.
Estacio was arrested on Dec. 30th with charges of land traffic in the city of Guayaquil after being denounced by Jose Serrano, Minister of Justice of Ecuador.
Estacio was released from Penitenciaria Del Litoral. Despite getting back his freedom, he shall be submitted to the court every week and he will be unable to leave the country.
