On November 11, the National Secretary of Communication (Secom) broadcast on several radio stations the voice of a man who repeated on four occasions that the bid conducted by the Agency for Regulation and Control of Telecommunications (Arcotel), and the Regulation Council of Communications (Cordicom) is “absolutely transparent,” and indicated that the alleged acts of corruption investigated by the State Attorney’s Office are an “isolated” issue.
This, in the face of allegations and subsequent investigation carried out by the Prosecutor´s Office of an alleged crime of illicit association that would involve a former advisor to the Vice President of the Republic, Jorge Glas, and who was elected as principal counselor in Cordicom, Marcos P., who allegedly charged up to $ 200,000 to award a frequency, as a support for the election campaign, according to the records. Tulio M., manager of a media of Manabi, and Diego A. (friend of singer Gerardo Moran) would also be involved.
This is included in the free and voluntary version the Secretary of Political Management; Paola Pabon gave on October 10, and Vice President Jorge Glas on October 7 for “slander,” before the Unit for Previous Investigations of Pichincha, within the complaint.
