Attorney General Carlos Baca intervened on Tuesday, October 31, for just over 10 minutes at the National Court of Justice. The official reviewed the evidence found against Jhon Pólit, son of former Comptroller General Carlos Pólit; and businessmen Estéfano Isaías and Mauricio Neme.
Baca cited the criminal assistance sent from Panama, which details the payments, possibly illegal, that Odebrecht made to Plastiquim, a company associated with Neme; and Cosani Real Estate Company, owned by Isaias. Based on that transfer report, the Office of the Prosecutor requested the connection of the three suspects in the criminal trial of concussion.
To guarantee their presence in this investigation, Baca did not request preventive detention for the suspects; he only demanded their appearance every 15 days in the National Court of Justice (CNJ), so he expects them to return to Ecuador in the coming days.
Currently, Neme and Pólit Jr. reside in Miami, United States, and Isaias in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Judge Luis Enríquez accepted the request of the Prosecutor’s Office and ordered that the banking system freeze all the accounts of the three suspects. In addition, he prohibited the sale of their properties.
“This measure can contribute to an integral reparation to the State, if there is a possible sentence,” said Baca. (I)
