Rafael Correa was yesterday in Manta for the inauguration of the Nuevo Tarqui Shopping Mall, built for those who lost everything in the earthquake of April 16. After the tour, from a platform, the president again defended the Capital Gains Law.
He went then to the Port Authority of Manta, where he had lunch with several children who lost their parents in the earthquake of April 16.
Then, in a conversation with the press, he described the complaints issue within the Odebrecht case as “very rare” and said that nothing could be assured without evidence, especially when several of those involved are candidates for the upcoming elections.
And in the Petroecuador case, he ironized: “tell the gringos to ‘do us harm’ and bring Carlos Pareja Yannuzzelli back” to talk and see who falls. On the possible political trial against Vice President and candidate Jorge Glas, he considered this as a “charade.”
