Attorney General Galo Chiriboga said that the prosecution is investigating whether the death of former President Jaime Roldós Aguilera is due to an alleged extrajudicial execution related to the Condor Plan, implemented by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in Central and South America.
Chiriboga said that according to preliminary results of the investigation, which has taken more than a year, the prosecution does not claim the existence of an extrajudicial execution, but the doubt remains that it could have happened.
“Ecuador, according to the information we have on this record, was part of the Condor Operation, and if it was part it means that some of the actions we are investigating could be related to that plan,” he said.
Besides the opened record after the death of Roldós and Parliament documents, the Prosecution sources have declassified information from the CIA and coordination with the National Archives of Homeland Security. It also has cooperation with the Public Ministry of Paraguay to access to the so-called “terror” files.
