Vice President of the IACHR does not know about the request for precautionary measures in favor of Correa
The vice president of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), Esmeralda Arosemena de Troitiño, said she has no information about the request of former president Rafael Correa for the agency to grant him precautionary measures in the face of the judicial accusations against him.
The commissioner is in the country as part of the delegation investigating the kidnapping and death of El Comercio journalists, Javier Ortega, Paúl Rivas and Efraín Segarra. This delegation of the IACHR will work three days in Quito, where it will meet with national and judicial authorities, social organizations and journalists.
In a few short statements to the press, Arosemena said she had no information on the request of the former president, but said it is proof that the commission is a bulwark for the defense of the human rights of all citizens.
“It fills me with many satisfaction that our commission is in the sights of all citizens, without excluding anyone, that is the defense of human rights,” she said.
Former President Correa was one of the strongest critics of the Inter-American Commission and, above all, the issuance of precautionary measures or protection in judicial cases. (I)
