The dust cloud lifted by the Anti-Corruption National Commission remains. Its first complaint, for alleged irregularities in the construction of the Manduriacu hydroelectric plant reaches the National Court of Justice.
Today, at 09:30, members of the group will attend a hearing after Attorney General Galo Chiriboga requests to close the file. For the Commission, the order makes no sense because the prosecution explains in a statement, “it is obligated to investigate the facts and evidence the Anti-Corruption National Commission submitted in the relevant complaint.”
The collective faces a demand of energy minister Esteban Albornoz by the Manduriacu case. For him, the alleged anomalies have no justification into reality.
Despite the legal scenario, the commission continues filing complaints. The last was for the purchase of lands where the Pacific Refinery should be built. President Rafael Correa played down the claims of the group.
