The former secretary of the inter-institutional committee that investigated the death of the FAE general, from 2012 to 2013, delivered the 38 minutes of the meetings yesterday.
Geovanna Palacios, former secretary of the inter-institutional committee that analyzed the Gabela case since 2012, delivered digital copies of the 38 minutes of the meetings of her personal file yesterday, as well as two papers scanned from minutes four and seven.
The first is about the beginning of the hiring of experts. The information is shown until August 23, 2013, during which time she was on that committee. The delivery of the documents was made in the presence of the notary Homero López.
Palacios appeared on Monday before the occasional commission of the Assembly, which analyzes the murder of ex-commander of the Ecuadorian Air Force (FAE), Jorge Gabela. “With the delivery of the documents I do not want to originate expectations of anything or anyone, but (show) what the meetings were.”
Assemblyman César Rohón admired Palacios’ courage to deliver the information despite the threats she has received.
Zúñiga delivered a report in 2015
The ex-Minister of Justice, Ledy Zúñiga, said that on July 2, 2015, they delivered all the information about the Gabela case to the Prosecutor’s Office.
The responsibility of the ministers of the committee was to write a report that was delivered to President Rafael Correa, through Pedro Solines, secretary of the Public Administration.
In July 2015 he delivered the report to the Office of the Prosecutor in which “we asked that the doubts we had in the case be investigated.” They also requested that the investigation be reopened, he said.
It was also requested that the bank deposits of a wife of a prisoner be investigated and that the complaints filed by the family be followed up. “I did not receive the third report from the expert Roberto Meza but a custody report from the Ministry of Justice, since it came six months after it.
She recalled that she arrived at the Ministry of Justice in March 2014 and that she remained until May 2017. “The person responsible for the custody of the partial report was Paola Carrera, secretary of the inter-institutional committee.” He questioned that the ballistic collation was not carried out.
“This may have changed the investigation,” said. The former official said that she also delivered the report to the Gabela family on July 9, 2015. On March 8 of that year, another expert was asked to help analyze the information on a pendrive, given by Patricia Ochoa, widow of Gabela. (I)
