Last Thursday, March 1, the Attorney General’s Office seized seven computers used by four officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in the case that investigates the transport of 40 kilos of drugs to Milan in the Ecuadorian diplomatic suitcase.
Computers, used by Timothy del Salto, Cristian Puedmag, Isela Sanchez, and Omar Cajas were used to maintain some kind of communication, via email, during the application process for sending the suitcase that was later detained in Milan (Italy).
This process headed by Pichincha’s fiscal agent, Fernando Guerrero requested the authorization to Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño to seize the equipment. However, the petition was unnecessary because Patiño along with the attorney already “ask (the officials) to surrender their computers.”
General Attorney, Galo Chiriboga is waiting for the certified copy of court files that began in Milan. With this information it would be able to check the other points along that suitcase travelled and know who contacted it or had access.
He also explained that a response is expected on the authorization asked by Italy for prosecutors and police from entering the country Ecuador and interview citizens involved in the case.
