With 38 supporting signatures, Assembly members Ricardo Vanegas and Sofía Sánchez, from the Pachakutik caucus, made official on September 29 a request for impeachment against former Interior Minister Patricio Carrillo.

This is the third impeachment request filed against Carrillo; The above were requested by legislators also from Pachakutik and the Democratic Left regarding the actions undertaken during the mobilization day last June and the wave of insecurity in the country.

Two political trials of Patricio Carrillo may continue their process despite being dismissed from the Ministry of the Interior

This time, there are four accusations presented by Vanegas and Sánchez; These are related to the illegal detention of the president of the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador (Conaie), Leonidas Iza, which is based on the judicial declaration of nullity of the trial, because the Police detained the indigenous leader without a legally issued arrest warrant. .

The second cause of the trial refers to the massacres in prisons while Carrillo served as Minister of the Interior, for which the investigations and human rights reports presented are attached.

The third reason is the increase in hit men in all the cities of the country.

The penultimate cause is related to citizen insecurity, which has led to the issuance by the Government of several state of emergency decrees in which the intervention of the Armed Forces was requested to control the increase in crime.

Finally, the two legislators accuse Carrillo of the inaction and omission made by the government authorities, including the former Minister of the Interior, on the issue of the femicide of María Belén Bernal at the Higher School of the National Police in Quito; Here, according to legislator Ricardo Vanegas, the criminal act itself is not analyzed, but rather what happened afterwards.

Once the request for interpellation has been submitted, the process will pass to the attention of the President of the National Assembly and, subsequently, to the qualification of the Legislative Administration Council. (YO)
