Prosecutor to appeal decision in Salerno case

The decision was handed down by Judge Rolando Quesada Vallespi.

The first anti-corruption prosecutor has announced she will appeal the decision of First Criminal Court Judge Rolando Quesada Vallespi that freed bank accounts containing $35 million that belong to Cobranzas del Istmo owner Cristóbal Salerno.

Prosecutor Tania Sterling said she will appeal the ruling once she is notified of the decision by the judge.

Quesada Vallespi released funds in a number of bank accounts linked to Salerno and his family. The accounts were frozen as part of the investigation into Cobranzas del Istmo, which received a controversial contract to collect delinquent taxes.

The judge argued that the majority of companies were created before the signing of the contract "so there is no way to say that they were used to hide money from the alleged offenses from the concerned contract."

Last February, Sterling charged Salerno and Revenue Director Luis Cucalón, who signed the contract, with corruption. The allegation is that the majority of revenue collected by the company came from state entities.
