Interpol-Ecuador informed to its branch in the United States that the former president of Central Bank of Ecuador, Pedro Delgado, has an arrest warrant. The former officer remains in Miami since December 19. The announcement was made by an official police source, adding that so far there is no answer on the subject.
Last Tuesday, the Prosecutor Galo Chiriboga announced that a “preventive detention” for Delgado has been issued to conduct an investigation within the existing inquiry following a complaint by Assemblyman Enrique Herreria ideological falsification. This is for signing documents as an engineer and as an economist without any title.
According to the police source, this does not mean that the U.S. Interpol will arrest and bring Delgado to the country, adding that everything depends on his migratory status. The former officer is processing a work visa, as the diplomatic document expires on January 18.
Meanwhile Herreria gave his testimony to the prosecutor and cautioned that Chiriboga confuses the terms “to deceive or just for being clumsy“, because last Tuesday he announced the order of “preventive detention“, when in fact it is only fitting that a “detention for investigation purposes,” is issued.
Juan Carlos Carmigniani, Delgado’s attorney said this is “a legal obstacle irremediable, because the facts can’t determine when such illegal conducts were carried out.”
