The National Court of Justice (CNJ) will analyze the decision of the Judge of Criminal Guarantees, Vicente Robalino of not ordering a preventive prison warrant against Pedro Delgado Campana, former president of the Central Bank of Ecuador (BCE) and cousin of the Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa.
This decision came after the CNJ accepted the appeal filed by the Attorney General. Now the Court of Appeals of the CNJ shall set a date and time for the hearing.
Meanwhile the Attorney General, Galo Chiriboga, appealed against judge Robalino’s refusal, deeming that he took a “wrong assessment of the evidence items presented by the prosecution.”
Prosecutors began a preliminary investigation against Delgado, on April 8, for the crime of intentional use of false documents, after Assemblyman (not affiliated) Enrique Herreria made the allegation that Delgado signed and occupied public office and public documents without an economist title.
