Pedro Delgado Campana, former President of Ecuador Central Bank (BCE) and cousin of the Ecuadorian President presented his fake third degree title to become a teacher at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito. As a teacher Delgado was an academic instructor in the university between January 1991 and January 1997.
This information is recorded in the Order No. 630 of the Public Prosecutor, issued on January 21, 2013. The document maintains, in Section 7, that Dr. Jose Guerrero Ponce, gave the information to the prosecutor in which it “attaches a copy of the title of economist as well as a copy of the master’s degree in Business Economics.”
According to the statements of Guerrero, Delgado not only presented his false title to access a fourth-level title in the Central American Institute of Business Administration (INCAE) of Costa Rica, he also used it to be a university professor. At that time the requirement was to have a third degree title, which qualified for university instructor.
Meanwhile, Juan Carlos Carmigniani, Delgado’s defence lawyer, said during an interview with El Universo newspaper, published on January 4, 2013, that “the worthless instrument he obtained in Costa Rica and was used it there 22 years ago.”
The Attorney General is already carrying out a preliminary investigation into the demand for ideological falsification by independent Assemblyman Enrique Herreria, who regretted that the prosecutor takes actions that seem to delay the investigation until after the February 17 presidential elections of Ecuador, and if the current government wins again, the matter would be forgotten, investigated or punished.
