State Attorney General´s office maintains 7 inquiry cases of the executive and legislative branches
Since 2013, the State Attorney General´s office maintains in previous research a possible case of illicit enrichment of Pedro Delgado Campaña, in his capacity as a presidential adviser and chairman of the Central Bank of Ecuador.
Likewise since 2007, five reports with evidence of criminal liability related to the executive branch (two of the Presidency and three of the Vice Presidency) have reached the prosecution for processing.
Prosecutor´s Office investigates a possible crime of embezzlement due to the acquisition of 2,700 antidecubitus mattresses carried out by the vice presidency in 2011, and in which five officials of that entity and the representative of the contracting company would be involved.
The second case involves an administrative employee of the Vice Presidency, accused of receiving the payment of $ 60,000 from a contractor company to avoid a penalty for breach of contract. Lenin Moreno, then Vice President, was the one who requested the initiation of the investigations.
In the past eight years, the Prosecutor´s Office has processed 11 reports with evidence of criminal liability arising from the Comptroller audits made to the National Assembly. Of these, four have open processes of inquiry or preliminary investigation.
Three of these cases, in which illicit enrichment is presumed, are related to the assets declarations of former assembly members. And in the fourth a possible crime of perjury by an administrative assistant of former assembly woman for Alianza Pais B.O.O., with whom there would be a family relationship, is investigated.
