The defense of the brothers Roberto and William Isaias, former owners of Filanbanco, submitted yesterday to the Constitutional Court (CC) an extraordinary protective action, which seeks to leave without effect all orders and judgments generated during the criminal proceedings against them.
The letter details the rights and guarantees, that according to the defendants, were violated by the organs of justice; among which are: being judged by independent, impartial and competent judges, for the due process and with equality before the law.
Lawyers indicate that throughout the process, their defendants were charged with six different crimes: bank embezzlement (three times with different figures), greater embezzlement, impaired balance and embezzlement.
The Isaias also denounced the “confiscation” of several of their assets, such as media, and other agricultural enterprises, which were taken over by the State.
With this resource, the defendants would exhaust all the local judicial instances.
Last year, they took their case to the Human Rights Committee of the United Nations, in Geneva, of which they expect a pronouncement for 2015.
