Carmigniani explained that Delgado currently resides in Miami and after asking the regulation of his immigration status: “It’s in an administrative process that prevents him from leaving the United States.”
The lawyer maintained that to prevent rumors that his client does not want to face justice in Ecuador or has refused to give his statement, has called at least seven times that the prosecution used the tool of international cooperation or international criminal assistance so that his client renders his version of events in Miami (USA).
Delgado defender clarified that the administrative process is performing his client against United States authorities is very long and still he has not even been called for the rigorous interview. Following this he said that just as the prosecution acted to obtain the documents in the Central American Institute for Business Administration (INCAE), through penal assistance, they could do it in Miami.
