Flor Granda knelt with a bouquet of white roses and in tears she cleaned the marble plaque that has the photo of her son, policeman Froilán Jiménez, who died on September 30, 2010, during the operation to remove former president Rafael Correa from the hospital of the National Police, after a police insubordination.
Yesterday, eight years after this event, Granda, his daughter Sandra Jimenez and the colonel in passive service César Carrión met outside that hospital, to place a wreath in memory of Froilán. They were accompanied by Julio César Trujillo, president of the Council of Citizen Participation.
Carrión was director of the hospital that year, and was imprisoned while he was investigated for attempted murder to Correa. “Here we are to say that we must tell the truth. Eight years to cover up the murder of Froilan, soldier Darwin Panchi, Juan Pablo Bolaños … We cannot keep the impunity left by the previous government. “
Sandra Jimenez claimed that despite these eight years it is not known who shot his brother. “We are asking for justice, because we know what happened on September 30, where we were honestly covered up in order to hide a principal murderer.”
Her speeches were confused with the cries of fans of Correa, grouped in a group ’30S Never again’, who said “scoundrel” to Carrion, today Assemblyman.
One of them shouted: “Kill me, kill me. Kill me, kill me, if you want, here I am! You cannot get us out of here, because we came in favor of Correa! “, He scolded, crying.
Durante este acto a Froilán Jiménez, una mujer parte del colectivo 30S puso una bandera con los rostros de Rafael Correa y Jorge Glas, encima de la placa que guarda el rostro de Froilán.

His claim came before the indignation of César Carrión, who removed a cloth with the faces of Correa, and former Vice President Jorge Glas who deployed the woman on the plaque in memory of Jiménez. Police officers controlled the incident, although they did not stop the screams of the correístas.
Ramiro Panchi, father of Armed Forces soldier Darwin Panchi who also died during the revolt, said indignantly because “nothing has been done” for his son.
On Twitter, the president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, wrote that after 30-S, now Correa is “a victim of treason and persecution,” but that the “courageous people of Ecuador will defend their revolution.” (I)
