Judge Denies “Extention and Clariffication” Appeal by Jorge Glas

The National Court of Justice has denied an appeal for clarification and extension by Vice President Jorge Glas’s defense attorney, reports El Universo.

Jorge Glas served as Minister of Strategic Sectors from 2010 to 2012 under President Rafael Correa. Glas was tapped to be Correa’s running mate and has served as Vice President since 2013. On August 3, 2017, he was suspended from that office by President Lenin Moreno as a result of the corruption investigation.

The appeal was for additional clarification related to article 95 of the General Organic Code of Processes, which lays out information that written sentences are required to contain.

He is currently being held in pretrial detention.
