The Doria boat, which was carrying around 700 kilos of cocaine, and is being claimed by the Panamanian Government, would have Colombian tuition, according to a document found inside the vessel at the time of the detention by the Ecuadorian Navy, last October.
According to the document issued by the maritime port of Colombia, the boat was registered in October 1989 in Buenaventura, and the owner is Angel Cabaleiro Ramirez. The document indicates that the ship, built nearly 40 years ago, has a mast, a winery, two decks, a propeller and a weight of 121,50 metric tons.
Last Thursday, the President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, said that the case of the boat is in the hands of the Prosecutor’s Office, which “has every right to take the time needed” to solve it.
The same day, Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño, pointed out that at no time the delivery of the ship has been conditioned by the extradition of member of Sociedad Patriotica party, Galo Lara, isolated in Panama, former Assembly member.
Relations between Ecuador and Panama are at the moment, at the level of business managers.
