The life of Marcelo Bonifaz changed since September 30, 2010.
That 30S revolt ended in accusations over the alleged kidnapping and attempted murder of the then-president, Rafael Correa.
Bonifaz was accused of being one of the responsibles who ordered the shooting at the vehicle that took Correa out of the Quito police hospital, to take him to the Carondelet Palace.
He was sentenced to 12 years in prison for attempted murder. However, he left prison because he met the requirements to obtain a pre-freedom. The former official said he is a victim of the pressures of the previous government.
And he recalled that Pamela M., who was an advisor to the ex-plaintiff and key piece of the bribes 2012-2016 case, offered him money and pardon.
Bonifaz stressed that he was asking him to accuse more police to justify the events of 30-S.
To this version is added the one of another expoliation, Nelson Puentestar, who received a bullet impact while taking care of a detainee in the Pablo Arturo Suárez hospital. He also says that past government authorities asked him to accuse his colleagues as responsible for his injuries.
He said that Laura T., Pamela M.’s assistant, also investigated in the Bribes case, coordinated the meetings at the Government Palace.
“They offered me housing, money and work in exchange for incriminating my classmates,” Puentestar said.
Edgar Molina, a lawyer for Pamela M., said he did not know the complaint, but believes that it is not true.
While the defender of Laura T. did not answer the calls. The two complaints were presented at the Assembly. CREO legislator, César Carrión, asked the Executive to officially recognize as “procedural megafraud” the criminal proceedings against police officers for 30-S.
He also left the Police after the revolt. On September 30, 2010, he was the director of the hospital where Correa took refuge after he was attacked in the Quito Regiment. The Prosecutor’s Office accused him of attempted murder and concealment of evidence.
No process advanced, but he was discharged from the Police. After this, he began his political life in CREO.
Now it demands that the interference in the justice that triggered the processes of expoliation be investigated and those responsible be punished.
