Marset, 31, whose name recently appeared as the alleged intellectual author of the murder in Colombia of the anti-mafia prosecutor Marcelo Pecci, received a passport from the Uruguayan authorities in Dubai despite having open cases against him.
The appearance of the two ministers was requested this Tuesday by the Broad Front (FA), a left-wing coalition that governed Uruguay between 2005 and 2020 and today the main opposition party, under the allegation that the case “has many dark points”, Senator Liliam Kechichian said.
“We are concerned about the process of delivering a passport to a person who had a false passport, but there are also a number of episodes that we have been seeing that greatly concern us,” he said.
However, the head of the Interior portfolio said on Tuesday that he did not know “what the doubt is because the legislation is very clear.”
Heber thus alluded to decree 129/014, issued in 2014, during the mandate of leftist José Mujica (2010-2015), on “approval of the regulation regarding the issuance of common passports, identity and travel documents and repeal of decree 167 /993”.
Said regulation establishes the consultation of judicial records in Uruguay for the issuance of a passport to citizens of that nationality abroad and, according to the Executive, the cases that Marset had at some point in his country were already closed.
In addition, this Tuesday the Minister of the Interior added that “there was no requirement, no red alert by Interpol.”
As reported days ago by the Uruguayan newspaper El Observador, Marset received his nationality’s passport while the Ministry of the Interior collaborated with the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in an international investigation. led by the Anti-Drug Secretariat of Paraguay.
With that passport, the drug trafficker left the prison where he was imprisoned for carrying false documentation from Paraguay – where, among other activities, he played soccer – and remains a fugitive from the Justice of that country.
