Update to: Glas released from prison after serving only 4 years for three different felony crimes

Published: Volume 6, Issue 27

On Friday, April 29th, the former Vice President of the Republic, Jorge Glas, arrived at the Court of Justice of Guayas to appear before a judge, as stipulated in the habeas corpus granted by Diego Moscoso, of the Judicial Unit of Manglaralto (Santa Elena), on April 9, 2022.

According to the court order, Glas must go to court on the first Monday of each month. The former official was released from the Cotopaxi prison on April 10th. Since Monday, May 2nd, was a holiday, he was summoned to appear on Tuesday, May 3.

Glas arrived at the Court of Guayas accompanied by the president of the Citizen Revolution, Marcela Aguiñaga, and Assemblyman Ronny Aleaga.

In a video of Glas’s visit to the court, shared by Aguiñaga on her Twitter account, Pedro Moreira, the former judge of Penitentiary Guarantees who granted habeas corpus to Junior Roldán, alias ‘JR’, can also be seen.

However, Aguiñaga clarified that Moreira was not part of the group that accompanied Glas and that his presence in the corridors of the Court was due to his work as a lawyer in professional practice.

Glas had two convictions he was serving sentences for before his release: one of six years in prison for illicit association in the Odebrecht case, and another of eight years for bribery in the Bribery case.
