Former regulator Pablo Sally left Prison 4 in Quito on the night of Tuesday, April 12, 2022, when a court replaced his preventive detention with house arrest at the age of 65 and he was considered a third-person.
Celi, in addition to house arrest, must wear an electronic shackle and have permanent surveillance in case of possible escape. He is already at his home in Quito.
Former regulator Las Torres has been in custody since April 13 in connection with the case. It is also being investigated for the China CAMC case. In both cases, preventive detention was requested but was not followed by alternative measures.
The former official has been accused of accepting bribes from companies contracted to the state in exchange for losing glasses.
