“(Rafael) Correa wants to implement a policy of fear so that nobody can talk or protest and continue to denounce the corruption, on the other hand if Mery Zamora goes to jail I want that this to be considered as a merit, in the defence of the interests of our dignity,” said yesterday the teacher of the Lorenzo Zumárraga school, located in the community El Limon, in the city of Portoviejo.
Likewise, she asserted that she did not break down when she listened to the judge, but for seeing the suffering of his 13-year-old son who wept when the verdict was announced, for allegedly inciting the Aguirre Abad School students to go out and support the protest on September 30, 2010.
“I told him not to cry, that he was a revolutionary un favor of just causes and that we will be together,” said the teacher.
She continues to teach his 33 students, at the time that she plans to appeal the sentence and be sure that her children and her mother have someone who takes care of them if she is imprisoned, for eight to twelve years. Her mother will be supported by her half-brothers; her family will take care of her children.
“We are going to appeal all instances in the legal field, in Guayas, in the national court with the resource of annulment and then go to the Inter-American Court of human rights, because it has been proven over and over again that since this process started has been violated and there is no evidence against me,” said Zamora.
On the other hand, the Prosecutor Galo Chiriboga said that if she takes the case to appeal, “obviously the prosecution will intervene.”
