Gustavo Pérez, former executive secretary of National Security Council, told prosecutors this week that former Police Deputy Commissioner Ronny Rodriguez transmitted reports of illegal wiretaps to the Presidency of the Republic.
A judicial source confirmed that Pérez, who was interviewed Wednesday, said Rodriguez was the link between the council and the executive. Pérez also denied participating in any kind of illegal wiretaps, and was only involved in the signing of documents.
Ronny Rodríguez and William Pittí, who also worked at the National Security Council, have outstanding arrest warrants that were issued Jan. 16 related to the illegal wiretaps, which were allegedly carried out during the government of Ricardo Martinelli.
Rodriguez's whereabouts are not known. He was offered a special retirement package shortly before Martinelli left office, but that package was later rescinded.
