The defense of former minister Arnaldo Giuzzio asked the Public Ministry to suspend the investigative hearing that had to be held this Tuesday in the framework of the case that investigates his link with the drug trafficker Marcus Vinicius Espíndola, arrested in Brazil.
The lawyer Guillermo Duarte Cacavelos, defender of the former Minister of the Interior, Arnaldo Giuzzio, presented another delaying measure in the process that his client is facing.
Today the lawyer asked the Public Ministry to suspend the investigative hearing that had to be held this Tuesday. He argued that the case still has questions to be confirmed in the area of the Judiciary to then continue with the investigations.
In this sense, yesterday the lawyer filed a reconsideration and subsidy appeal against the decision of Judge José Agustín Delmás, who admitted the accusation of alleged aggravated passive bribery (bribery) against former minister Arnaldo Giuzzio.
In that sense, Judge Delmás has already transferred to the Prosecutor’s Office
to answer the replacement presented by Giuzzio’s defense against the admission of the accusation.
In other words, Duarte Cacavelos asks the Prosecutor’s Office not to hold the investigative hearing for Giuzzio on the date, until the court unblocks the chicanery presented against the court’s decision to admit the accusation.
On the other hand, a challenge filed by Duarte Cacavelos against prosecutors Osmar Legal and Alicia Sapriza, who last week charged Giuzzio with aggravated passive bribery, was rejected yesterday as inadmissible.
With this Chicana, Giuzzio intended to prevent these agents from continuing to investigate him. However, with the rejection of the action, the Legal and Saprisa prosecutors can now intervene again in the present process where the link that Giuzzio had with the drug trafficker Marcos Vinicius, currently imprisoned in Brazil for processes linked to drug trafficking, is being investigated.
Prosecutors Osmar Legal and Alicia Sapriza raided Giuzzio’s house and seized documents, cell phones and other evidence that served as the basis for presenting the accusation, but at the time of this situation, the lawyer Duarte Cacavelos (expert in chicaning processes) already locked the entire continuation of the investigations with both incidents.
The background of the case reveals that Arnaldo Giuzzio, being Minister of the Interior, maintained a friendly and business relationship with the drug trafficker who was about to benefit from a millionaire tender to provide the Police with armored vehicles and bulletproof vests. At the same time, he also lent the Giuzzio luxury vans to go on vacation to Brazil.
