Ecuador’s justice system releases dangerous criminals with help from judges, police officers, and lawyers

In a stunning move to combat corruption within the justice system, the Ecuadorian Prosecutor’s Office conducted raids and arrests of judges, former judges, judicial officials, practicing lawyers, and police officers in eight provinces of the country. These individuals are being investigated for facilitating the release of dangerous criminals through legal maneuvers and abuse of the law. The operations took place in the provinces of El Oro, Azuay, Manabí, Pichincha, Chimborazo, Tungurahua, Guayas, and Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas.
