Ecuadorian police detain judge who granted habeas corpus to former Ecuadorian vice president Jorge Glas – MINISTERIO DEL INTERIOR DE ECUADOR

Ecuador’s Interior Ministry reported on Tuesday night that the Ecuadorian police have arrested the judge of the Court of Guarantees of the city of Puerto Viejo who last week granted freedom to former Ecuadorian vice president Jorge Glas.

The magistrate, Banny Rubén Molina, has been detained to carry out investigations after being accused of committing an alleged crime of usurpation of functions, since according to the Ecuadorian Judiciary, he would have acted without being in the corresponding jurisdiction to grant a ‘habeas corpus’, has reported ‘El Universo’.

“The Judicial Unit of the Ecuadorian Police, in coordination with the Intelligence Subzone the city of Manabí, apprehended the citizen Rubén M.B, who had a warrant for his arrest, for investigation for the crime of Usurpation of Functions,” the Ministry of Interior has reported on Twitter.

The judge of Portoviejo granted the protection action to the former vice-president on Friday, August 5, considering that his health conditions had not been attended “in a specialized and comprehensive manner”.

The government of President Guillermo Lasso has announced its intention to file an appeal against the release of Glas, since it considers it “illegal” that Molina has issued a sentence from a jurisdiction far from the place where the former vice-president is imprisoned, which is in Prison 4, located in Quito.

In addition, the Ecuadorian Executive has assured that neither the State Attorney’s Office nor the National Service of Integral Attention to Adults Deprived of Liberty and Adolescent Offenders (SNAI) were summoned to the hearing that released Glas for various corruption offenses.

“My government will not allow corruption in Ecuador. The country needs to recover justice, fundamental pillar of coexistence in democracy,” said Ecuadorian President Guillermo Lasso in a statement shared on Twitter.

The Ecuadorian opposition, for its part, has denounced the “interference” of the government in the country’s justice system after it prevented the release of Glas.

“We reject the criterion issued by Guillermo Lasso and we remind the country that his position is purely political and – therefore – lacks any constitutional legitimacy,” said the correista bench of Unes, the party to which Glas belongs, in a statement issued Tuesday.

Unes has argued that the Executive “cannot contravene a constitutional guarantee”, and that in this way delegitimizes the sentence of “a competent judge who in use of his powers (…) issues a ruling based on law”.
