The political activist of Sociedad Patriotica, Fernando Balda delivered today, Monday January 28, 2013, a complaint to the Attorney General, which was also given to the prosecution of Colombia. Balda reveals in the paper that Ecuadorian intelligence agents infiltrated in Colombia participated in his kidnapping.
Given these revelations, the influential Colombiana magazine Semana published yesterday the issue and warned that this is a “scandal” that violates the country’s sovereignty in the North. The Colombian Government investigations are more advanced, since it has already been determined the identity of the Ecuadorians agents. The most visible name is of Raul Luis Chicaiza Fuentes, an active agent of the National Intelligence Ecuador, responsible for renting a gray Toyota Prado, which was used to try to kidnap Balda.
The other Ecuadorians involved are Jorge Espinoza Mendez and a woman who calls herself Nicolle Betancourt along with Stalin Scoto, a retired intelligence agent of Ecuador. It says they were together on the failed kidnapping attempt of Balda by Chicaiza.
The second time Balda was almost kidnapped was in June 5, 2012, when Colombian authorities arrested the activist when he was traveling in a taxi to his home. At that time he had orders of migration, but was released because there was no requirement for migration, or Interpol.
When Fernando Balda was exiled in Colombia he related to the inner circle of former President Alvaro Uribe, and is during a talk of political nature, on May 9, 2012, that he met Raul Chicaiza. The agent pretended to be a member of an NGO and contacted Balda for help in looking for a security company that sells equipment such as surveillance cameras and monitoring. The Patriotic Society activist agreed with Chicaiza, along with other intelligence agent retired Ecuador, Stalin Scotus, who afterwards attempted to kidnap him. The agents’ hired Colombian criminals to help them accomplish their goal.
