With the accusation in hand, the lawyer Hernan Ulloa, defense of Eduardo Santana and Freddy Soria, security guards of the Las Cumbres urbanization, arrived at the office of the provincial prosecutor (e) of Guayas, Edmundo Briones.
“At this time we are going to formalize the complaint that was never attended by the Prosecutor’s Office at the time these guards came to ask for the necessary help and that was not transferred to any judge of contraventions so that he knows the flagrancy and is in a hearing where it is determined if there is some type of conciliation, and that the record is signed before the pertinent authority, “Ulloa mentioned before the private meeting with the representative of the Public Ministry.
In the document, the guards relate in detail the events that took place around 4:50 pm on Sunday, August 5, and that became viral on Monday, through a video broadcast on social networks, which shows the aggressions that received by three residents of the urbanization Ceibos Norte.
“We were controlling the entrance of the vehicles when the resident of Ceibos Norte arrived and he wanted to enter through the entrance of residents. The automated TAG system did not detect his device and that caused the citizen to discharge his irritation against us, “says the complaint.
Ulloa questioned the decision of the prosecutor of Flagrancia to determine that what happened was only a contravention, because the injuries caused them an incapacity of three days, so he asked the Prosecutor’s Office to investigate the case for attempted homicide.
“That he does not come to me to say (the prosecutor) that because a gun or a knife was not used, you cannot end people’s lives. A blow to the head, or several, can end the life of a human being, leaving him with a permanent disability, “said Ulloa, who also said he would ask that charges be brought immediately against the aggressors and that” the measures of immediate protection, in order that these people attend the trial. “
According to the version of Soria and Santana, the doctor who attended them had an attitude “totally removed from their functions”, because he told them to “stop doing theater”, at the moment when each one approached the Flagrancy Unit, located in the Albán Borja shopping center. In the end, the prosecutor on duty only ordered that the respective medical examination be made to Soria.
In this case, to say of Ulloa, the official who attended the complaint had to fully assess all the evidence that was presented at that time, “not only the medical report, but the testimony of the victims, compared with the video where it is seen the brutal aggression. “
After the meeting with the provincial prosecutor, the lawyer settled the complaint and was waiting for the draw of the case in the Unit of Persons and Guarantees.
