Ecuador’s justice system releases dangerous criminals with help from judges, police officers, and lawyers

On Wednesday, the Ecuadorian Prosecutor’s Office conducted raids and arrests of judges, former judges, judicial officials, practicing lawyers, and police officers in eight provinces of the country. These individuals are being investigated for facilitating the release of dangerous criminals through legal maneuvers and abuse of the law. The operations took place in the provinces of El Oro, Azuay, Manabí, Pichincha, Chimborazo, Tungurahua, Guayas, and Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas. The prosecution specified that the raids were related to organized crime, illicit enrichment, and influence peddling across various sectors.

The Prosecutor’s Office stated that the goal of these actions is to root out corruption within the justice system that has become a vicious circle of illegal activities. They emphasized their commitment to combating this corruption and ensuring that there is no impunity for those involved in criminal activities. Images released by the institution showed police and ministry agents carrying out raids and arrests of individuals connected to the irregular practices of granting freedom in exchange for favors or money.

The exact number of people arrested nationwide and the specific cases that led to this operation have not been disclosed. However, last year a case involving significant drug trafficking networks was exposed across various sectors of Ecuadorian society including justice, police politics as well as prosecutor’s office. This investigation was triggered by messages sent by a drug trafficker prior to his death in prison which revealed extensive corruption networks. Over recent years there have been numerous investigations into corrupt practices particularly during former presidents Rafael Correa’s , Lenín Moreno’s and Guillermo Lasso’s administrations which resulted in high-ranking officials being imprisoned or fleeing the country due to violent incidents President Daniel Noboa declared an internal armed conflict labeled certain organized crime groups as terrorists following these incidents concerns over further criminal attacks heightened military presence security measures remain in place with focus on drug terrorism combat maintaining security while addressing public concern over violence escalation resulting from these incidents
