The PSC legislator, Esteban Torres, revealed that they presented two criminal news to the State Attorney General denouncing procedural fraud in the case of the La Concordia judge, Ángel Lindao, whom he questioned for being the same judge who returned the property to Leandro Norero, murdered in the Latacunga prison, and who was suspended by the Judicial Council.

Torres said that the PSC filed a second complaint against the dismissed directors for arrogating functions and committing the crime of holding public office without due support; and in addition, a complaint was filed for inexcusable error against the judge of La Concordia; “And we are not going to stop until the Assembly is no longer contaminated with this type of judicial action.”

The pro-government legislator, Nathalie Arias (BAN-CREO), commented that prior to the installation of session 816, the communications of the alternate councilors Figueroa and Ponce were known, excusing themselves from participating in the session, and that is added to the fact that the situation in Judicial matters are not clear and there are precautionary measures to the decision of the Assembly to censure and dismiss the four directors.

The two alternate councilors in their excuses make it known that the result of these protection actions must first be known, since at the moment it is in the hands of the Ecuadorian justice to define them, while that does not happen they should not take office and the four councilors: Ulloa , Rivadeneira, Estupiñán and Bravo, must continue acting.

Chugchilan Resignation

In a document dated November 24 that was circulated in the National Assembly, the alternate counselor of the CPCCS, Jaime Chugchilán Caisaguano, resigned from office for family and personal reasons that have become acts of political persecution and inconsistencies in a personal process for part of political actors that “with threats against my integrity and that of my family I changed my address abroad a year ago, as a citizen I request to investigate the criminal process and to inform the public who benefited from the money in the complaint filed for massive fraud.”

With a prison order for fraud is a CPCCS adviser who would replace one of the four dismissed by the National Assembly

“I have been one more victim as indicated by the accounting expertise, which is why I request that my name not be considered in the certification required by the National Assembly of the substitutes that must be principalized in the CPCCS; I resign as a counselor to the CPCCS, 2019 elections, representing indigenous peoples and nationalities, Afro-Ecuadorians or Montubios and Ecuadorians abroad,” the document states.

Faced with this resignation, the next substitute, according to the documentation presented by the National Electoral Council (CNE), to the National Assembly would be Olindo Nastacuaz Pascal. (YO)
