Sandra Quiñónez, state attorney general, announced via note that she will not be able to attend the reserved session called by the Senate for Wednesday at nine in the morning.
The reason is the direct contact he had with the prosecutor Alicia Sapriza, who is hospitalized for a Covid-19 picture.
“The rigorous health control (swab) is scheduled for Wednesday, May 18, so any news will be reported as soon as possible,” reads part of the note.
The senators had summoned her to discuss the accusations of the attorney general herself. Quiñónez, blamed Congress for budget cuts that prevent prosecutors from being provided with greater security. However, several members of the Upper House allege that these sayings do not conform to the truth.
