However, DESPITE THE END OF BOTH PROCESSES, they are illegally resuscitating them. Reason for which the first process in the year 2014 came to an end by virtue of having resolved the merits of the matter, for which reason the proceedings were DISMISSED and ARCHIVED, due to the existence of civil judgments of rescission of contracts entered into between the Trust Bank of the FIPRODESO Trust, and two (2) entities with which the Bank did business.

3rd Court. of First Criminal Instance, Drug Activity and Crimes against the Environment of Guatemala.

In this case, the spontaneous declaration exposed in hearings of the "Effective Collaborators" called attention, in which one of them declared that he had been forced by representatives of the then International Commission Against Impunity -CICIG who, with the collaboration of the -FECI they had written his confession and that he was forced to testify as they wanted, in exchange for his freedom. Based on said statement, the comptroller judge of the investigation, Mynor Mauricio Moto Morataya, objectively and legally closed the process against the VALDEZ-PAIZ brothers, which in retaliation caused him to be denounced for said resolution, being attacked by him alone. fact of having taken the confession of the “Efficient Collaborator” and having acted based on the Law'.

On August 21 of the present, the team of legal representatives of the VALDEZ-PAIZ brothers, filed three (3) criminal complaints before the Public Ministry of the Republic of Guatemala against, among others, the chief prosecutor of the -FECI Juan Francisco Sandoval Alfaro by;

I. -Hide and deny the delivery of exculpatory evidence to the accused;

II. - Manslaughter, by preventing one of the VALDEZ-PAIZ brothers from leaving the country to receive medical treatment that he could not receive in Guatemala, despite the existence of three (3) final Court Orders ordering his full release;

III. -Present four (4) "False Witnesses" against the Valdez-Paiz brothers.
IGSS-PISA Case -Acquitted after serving an Early Sentence of more than 4 years in "Indefinite Provisional Prison ".

Another example of a fabricated case where the accused were acquitted after more than four (4) years suffering the illegal "Indefinite Provisional Prison". The illegality that they maliciously used in the IGSS-PISA case is important for two reasons;

Excessive abuse of "Preventive Prison" and;

By virtue of the annulment of the sentence, for not having legal grounds for convictions.

This case claimed two innocent lives, one of the defendants repeatedly requested permission to be transferred from the prison center to a hospital center due to his delicate state of health, a fact that was denied and as a consequence the defendant died.

The second victim of the IGSS-PISA case is the suicide of Dr. Jesús Arnulfo Oliva Leal who suffered psychological torture, judicial brutality due to the “Indefinite Preventive Prison” suffered for four (4) years while being innocent.
