On Tuesday night the former soccer referee, Byron Moreno, went to the Fourth Narcotics District’s Attorney’s Office of Guayas, to give his version on a drug trafficking case, opened on September 23, 2010.
Accompanied by two people, Moreno arrived to give his free and voluntary testimony to Attorney Monica Rivera, from the Narcotics Unit. The Prosecutor’s Office didn’t provide details of the statement because the process is on the stage of preliminary investigation.
The process was initiated by former district prosecutor Antonio Gagliardo, to investigate how the former referee evaded security controls in the Jose Joaquin de Olmedo airport and how he boarded a plane to the United States with the drug attached to him.
Moreno served a sentence of 26 months in a U.S. prison after he was caught with 6.2 kilos of cocaine strapped to his body when arriving at the John F. Kennedy airport.
