Ecuadorian Parliament Talks Correa Trial

Quito, Sep 24 (Prensa Latina) Parliamentary blocs are deciding today if they will analyze tomorrow a request by the Justice Supreme Court to try Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa.

The issue must be supported by the Legislature's Administrative Council, made up of heads of legislative groups, the Congress leader Jorge Cevallos stated.

"Everything will depend on the position the administrative council adopts," pointed out Cevallos highlighting his opposition to accept trial of the head of State.

In case of an agreement to debate that affair tomorrow, the discussion will focus on some reports presented by Civil, Penal and Constitutional Affairs Commissions, he stressed.

The top congressional representative warned that the response of his body is a constitutional obligation, which does not imply the president is guilty.

Deputy Tania Masson explained that request, based on former government adviser Quinto Pazmino against the statesman, refers to a crime of insult.

The suit was presented by Pazmino, who requests from Correa a compensation of $10-million in damages.
