Garuz and Pérez called to trial

Temas:

Prosecutors have called former Security Council executive secretaries Alejandro Garúz and Gustavo Pérez to trial for offenses related to the alleged illegal surveillance carried out by the agency.

Also charged in the case are former National Security Council officials William Pittí and Ronny Rodríguez, who are both fugitives. Garúz and Pérez are being held in La Gran Joya.

They are accused of intercepting communications from more than 150 people, including journalists, business leaders, civic figures and political opponents of the government of Ricardo Martinelli (2009-2014).

The investigation began on July 29, 2014, under Auxiliary Prosecutor Marcelino Aguilar. Later, the case was transferred to Organized Crime Prosecutor Ricardo Muñoz, who concluded his investigation Friday.

The case file is now being forwarded to the judiciary, said Rolando Rodríguez, secretary general of the Attorney General's Office.
