The anti-corruption judge Juan José Quiroz dismissed the incident presented by the lawyer of the former mayor Angélica Sosa and restarted the precautionary hearing after an hour’s break.
“Sosa’s attorney raised incidents in which he argued that his client’s arrest was unlawful. In addition, they argued that she was not formally cited in accordance with the procedures, which is why she even requested the allegation to be set aside, ”reported El Deber.
The audience was installed in the Santa Cruz Palace of Justice in the middle of a police station.
The public prosecutor’s office announced that it would apply for preventive detention while the investigation was ongoing.
