Lawyer Guillén: Medicines given to Áñez by the prison regime were harmful

Luis Guillén, defense attorney for former President Jeanine Áñez, announced this Monday that the drugs the prison doctor had given the ex-president were wrong, and this fact was confirmed by the doctor of the Thorax Institute at the medical session on Friday proved.

“The drugs they provided (for Jeanine Áñez) were counterproductive, they shouldn’t have been used in this way, the thorax psychiatrist warned the prison regime that she had not used the drugs properly Medicines that they administered to the ex-president with the sole purpose of regulating her pressure, “the lawyer told Red Uno.

While the director of the penal system, Juan Carlos Limpias, and the government minister Eduardo del Castillo assured that the health of the former president was “completely stable”, she was seen with a more dejected face every day. The biggest crisis occurred on Saturday morning when Áñez tried to commit suicide.

The attorney stated that this drug, which was observed by the chest doctor, “had other consequences, such as an increase in the depression she already had and the development of syndromes that can be paranoid, the panic syndromes, due to the nature and way in which you were provided with this drug ”.

Another aspect that Guillén highlighted from this medical panel was the ex-president’s assessment of the heart injury, and it is not known whether this happened before or after he was admitted to prison.

He noted that the family cardiologist and the thoracic institute agreed that the injury was not acute, but “obviously this would have repercussions for the ex-president, and if that pressure rise and fall continues.” would have been “. Indeed, all this time there would be major health problems ”.

The lawyer made it clear that on Friday he was only on the medical board for a moment and not during the entire development, as noted by the director of the penal system, Juan Carlos Limpias.

“I’m surprised that the prison regime came out that we were on the entire medical panel, no, but at that time we heard these two important situations,” he said.

Guillén denounced that during the five months of preventive detention Áñez was serving, the ex-president was the victim of a number of prison irregularities, such as abrupt transfers to medical centers without her relatives or lawyers being notified.

In all of this, Guillén said, “the prison regime obviously caused this depression that the ex-president is having.”

He also regretted that the prison administration kept the ex-president’s medical history secret during this time. “We hope they can really give us the medical history this week,” he said.

Despite a court order, the government denied Áñez a medical examination in a private center and forced him to be treated in a public hospital.

Article 96 of Law Enforcement and Oversight Law 2298 states that “the detainee may, with the prior approval of the director, receive medical care outside the institution at his own expense.”
