Pedro Delgado Campaign, former president of the Central Bank of Ecuador, who is currently living in Miami (USA), faces a unique situation: his diplomatic papers would expire in the next 4 days.
Juan Carlos Carmigniani, Delgado’s attorney in Ecuador, pointed out that his client is trying to get political asylum in U.S. while he’s trying to get a work visa. However, he does not rules out the possibility of leaving the United States and go to a country that does not require a visa from Ecuadorians.
However, last Thursday, the Attorney General’s Office, Galo Chiriboga, talked to Radio Democracy, and spoke disparagingly Delgado, and described him as “the mute cousin“. When the prosecutor, was asked about the claims of Delgado’s lawyer, who said his client was forced to read his own confession, Chiriboga stated with an informal tone replied: “Ahh, the other goes silent and reads.”
During the interview, the prosecutor said he is not a relative of the Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa Delgado and explained that his half brother, Leonardo Chiriboga Correa is.
