Assemblyman Henry Herreria, filed a complaint with the Prosecutor’s Office alleging that Pedro Delgado, cousin of President Rafael Correa and President of the Central Bank of Ecuador and the Trust Board AGD-CFN No More Impunity, committed a crime against public trust having lied about his degree as an economist, which would allow him to legally exercise his public functions.
According to the evidence presented by Herreria, Delgado has a master’s degree in economics obtained at Incae in Costa Rica, but not certified by the National Secretary of Higher Education (SENESCYT for its Spanish acronym). Also there is not a registry of his third level degree as an economist.
Herreria suggests that this infringement sets an extraordinary minor imprisonment term of 9-12 years for the public servant for the offense to the public trust.
The complaint, said Herreria, also will be delivered to the comptroller Carlos Polit to request Delgado’s removal from office.
Several media have revealed that Delgado has not yet pronounced himself on the matter. (MZ)
