A tense situation was experienced during the last hearing aimed at explaining the crime of Paraguayan prosecutor Marcelo Pecci, which took place on Wednesday, when a subject convicted of this homicide appeared before the famous prosecutor Mario Burgos, who said he was threatened by a delegate. of the Attorney General’s Office.
Prosecutor Burgos questioned the already convicted Andrés Pérez Hoyos about the meetings he had in a van with Francisco Luis Correa, who was identified as the mastermind behind the crime.
At first, the prisoner, from the Cómbita prison, confirmed that he had attended those meetings. However, he later changed his testimony, prompting the prosecutor to warn him about the potential legal consequences of changing his sworn statement.
“Remember that you are under oath, Mr. Andrés, and, despite being convicted, you may face legal consequences,” warned Burgos.
The Cartagena circuit judge had to intervene to calm the situation and, at one point, silenced the microphone of Pérez Hoyos, who continued to maintain that Burgos “did not use his position with moral ethics.”
The testimony of Pérez Hoyos may be of great relevance to the case, because he waived his right to remain silent to detail the participation of his partner, Margareth Chacón, in the assassination of the Paraguayan prosecutor.
Meanwhile, Andrés insists that his partner has no ties to Paraguayan crime and traveled with him to Cartagena to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Ramón Emilio Pérez Hoyos, brother of Andrés, was also present at the hearing, both convicted for their role in planning the crime.
