The study of the experts, who were hired by the lawyers of the Journal, revealed that the conversion of the text files of the sentence as well as the scanning of those files were not made in judge Paredes’ computer.
The report indicates that, 50 minutes after the conclusion of the adjudication hearing of the first instance (July 10, 16:00), four PDF files, which contained scanned reproductions of the complaint filed by President Rafael Correa, were copied from a external source unspecified to the computer of the Court 15 º.
At the same hour, a “pirate” compressed version of a program called FineReader Pro 8, to convert images to text with OCR technology, was installed on the computer.
According to the Timeline of activities done on this computer, from July 19th to July 20th, it was first opened a 5 pages document to convert it with the computer program mentioned above. After ten minutes, the computer generated another file with the transcript in its memory. After that, the same thing was done with another file which contained over 150 text pages of the lawsuit of President Rafael Correa.
At 11:08pm (the same day), the computer recorded a new movement, which confirms the entry of a pendrive called SUPER. Minutes later, it appeared in the system the Word file Correa457-2011.doc, which contained the text of the ruling against the media.
