Eight leaves, already proficient, reflect provisions, orders and distribution of contributions to Alianza PAIS. There are allusions, though without a name, to Correa and Glas.
The eight pages of the notebook attributed to Pamela Martínez, ex-adviser to former president Rafael Correa and former constitutional judge, do not have references of date, day, month or year. Nor do they mention literally the names of Rafael Correa or Jorge Glas. But there are unmistakable allusions to them, under the acronym SP or VP. By the provisions, it is assumed that they correspond to ‘Mr President’ and ‘Vice President’. Despite this, the content of the notebook is so forceful that it has led to the formulation of charges for alleged concussion against former legal secretary Alexis Mera and former transport minister María Duarte.
In the eight sheets produced there are indications of crime, but also clear provisions to exert “pressure” with prudence, distrust and even prayers, as if blame were to be expiated.
The writings reflect the degree of closeness and confidence of Martínez Correa and the mandatory compliance with its provisions. For example: “Dispatch with SP. 1. Calls for more speed in citizen attention! 2. Authorizes, within the prudent, to pressure those responsible for the citizens’ requirements. 3. Give new instruction. “
Next to an arrow drawn, the following idea: “He has ‘doubts’ about the expense report presented by R. Patiño in the last electoral process. It arranges to register the electoral expenses of A. P. to ‘contrast’. “
In addition to the record of distribution of the contributions of the campaign, in the notebook that was found behind the fireplace in a department of Pamela Martínez there is space to write about Law, the guarantee, Ferragiolo and prayers. “Soul of Christ, sanctify me. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, embriágame … Amen. “
The raid on the house of Martinez, on May 29, was part of the investigation into the case Arroz Verde on alleged illegal contributions to the correísta campaign of 2013 and 2014, and he later derived the investigation against Alexis Mera and María de Los Angeles Duarte. In the first case, the investigated ones are Martínez and her exasistent Laura Terán, for bribery, illicit association and influence peddling in real concurrence of crimes. Both are in a house of confidence in the south of Quito, after passing through the prison of Cotopaxi.
Odebrecht would have contributed to the PAIS campaign. Pamela Martínez recorded in her notebook: “I receive provisions to deliver envelopes from Ing. De Sousa to Galo Mora.” Assistant Christian Paredes told the Prosecutor’s Office that the executive visited Martinez three or four times a year and always came with a briefcase.
Paredes was arrested on Monday. He was assistant to Martinez’s office. He was not a friend, but he knew that Geraldo De Souza from Odebrecht visited her because it was announced by the intercom. At her request, between 2013 and 2015, she took blank Nexoglobal bills to the Odebrecht offices in Quito.
Viteri revealed how the PAIS campaign worked
Martínez’s notebook: pressures and even prayers
Testimony. Christian Viteri was in the Office of the Prosecutor on May 27.
Christian Viteri, a PAIS ex-ambassador, was one of those mentioned in the Mil Hojas report on the alleged illegal contributions of State contractors to the PAIS campaign of 2013 and 2014.
He was called to the Prosecutor’s Office to give a version in the case investigating Pamela Martínez, ex-adviser of former president Rafael Correa, and ex-insistent Laura Terán. Both are stopped.
The name of Viteri is included in Martínez’s notebook on the distribution of campaign contributions. On May 27 he told the prosecutor of the case, Ruth Amoroso: “I never received cash from Mrs. Pamela Martínez. Never”.
He was in the campaign of Viviana Bonilla to the Mayor of Guayaquil. Remember a meeting in December 2013 in which former President Rafael Correa would have given guidelines and asked “if resources are coming for the campaign.”
He said he was convinced that Jorge Glas was involved in the campaign because when he presented Vinicio Alvarado with the necessities, he indicated that Glas would receive him in his office.
He pointed out that Alvarado was presenting himself as the national campaign chief and that he once asked him where the resources would come from and he responded that “from the funds of the movement and groups of contributors they had.” (I)
