Spouses are imprisoned for having links with the mass escape from The Rock
The involved are Rebeca Fabiola Pilco Solis, head of Human Resource area and her husband, the dentist Miguel Angel Trivino Hoppe, were accused by the prosecutors for complicity in the escape of 18 inmates from the prison known as ‘La Roca’.
Marco Gonzalez, Judge of the Flagrancy Unit, ordered the preventive arrest for both professionals and their immediate transfer to the prison, after being linked with the criminal proceeding brought against the director of (La Roca) and 14 guides of the penal institution. The request was made byJackson Lima, the prosecutor investigating the mass escape.
During the hearing of linkage, held at 08:30 in the Judicial Unit Headquarters located in the old precinct station, which Pilco and Trivino previously atrended, the official said that there is the information needed for the prosecution to solve the linking case of the pair through Article 309 of the Penal Code which imposes a three year imprisonment for complicity with the fugitives.
Additionally Lima said the testimonies of the three guides warn of several evidence that should be investigated to find out the degree of participation and responsibility of the spouses. He referred to the statement of the guide Jackson Mina Nazareno, who said in his testimony along with that of their peers, “we suspect of doctor Trivino because he always talked with the PPL (detainee) who fled,” he said that on the day of the escape, the economist Pilco tried to enter a uniform, a belt and boots of a guide, but the police did not allow it.
Moreover the Warden Bienvenido Garces Caicedo said several “months ago there was a hunger strike in ‘La Roca’. Following investigations by Colonel Espinoza … learned that the doctor Trivino had given the needles so they could perform the demonstrations” in which an inmate w alias ‘Azul’ was injured with a pair of tweezers that belonged to the dentist. Suspicions arose because Trivino always attended the same persons, the now fugitives Cesar Vernaza, Jorge Luis Zambrano, Gilberto Pineiros, Alberto Forty Agua and Fernando Sotelo.
The guide Darwin Valencia Marquez revealed that during the hunger strike, the PPL had suturing implements, the same that is in the dentistry, and Trivino always called the prisoners, adding that during the month of October he always made them enter and locked the door: “One day I heard a PPL tell the doctor that the deposit was already being made… and that he always saw them in secret.”
