Ecuador: “The Government does not take care of the problems of the people”

The investigation against the president is archived within the framework of the Pandora Papers.

After the decision of the Comptroller General of Ecuador to archive the investigation against the president for his involvement in the so-called Pandora Papers, the Ecuadorian researcher Katiuska King spoke with GPS International to analyze the implications of this in the political situation of the South American country.

The Comptroller General of Ecuador decided to archive the investigation against the president, Guillermo Lasso, for the case called Los Pandora Papers. In this context, “the Ecuadorian situation is complex and the Government has accused at certain times that they are not letting it govern,” he said. In times when the Government had had difficulties in getting regulations approved, “this issue of the Pandora Papers, through which an investigation begins in the Assembly, “he added.

In this regard, “this investigation took time to collect some evidence, but unfortunately they had many difficulties, because the public control institutions, which do not necessarily belong to the Executive Branch, did not provide them with the information,” he asserted. The Comptroller’s report is extremely striking, “Since in extraordinarily fast times it does an investigation and does not collect all the information,” he said. In turn, “he ignored new elements in the investigation,” he said.

The Lasso government is criticized for serious flaws in its management.

With regard to the balance sheets of the first months, «this is a government that learn as you go and that it does not have very strong teams, since they come from the private sphere and do not know what is public, “he said. For its part, “one of the successful topics has been vaccination against Covid-19, with rates higher than 60% of people with a third dose,” he indicated. However, “it has had very large flaws, such as the poor handling of deaths in prisons,” the researcher concluded.

On radio M24 and Sputnik we were also in contact with the researcher Sabrina Olivera, with whom we discussed India’s position on the crisis in burma.

The Indian Foreign Ministry expresses concern about the situation in Burma.

Through a statement from the Indian Foreign Ministry, the country expressed its concern for the sentence against the former Minister of State and Nobel Peace Prize, Aung San Suu Kyi. Within this framework, “both countries share territorial maritime borders, ties and a common history, so what happens in Burma is important for India,” said the researcher. Indeed, “India always struggles for diplomatic and democratic solutions in what happens in its neighborhood,” he added.

In this sense, “said country always puts on the board that it is the largest democracy in the world, so it expects its neighbors to resolve their disputes in the same way,” he said. Although when the coup was carried out in Burma, India also issued a statement hoping that there would be a democratic way out, “it never finished condemning the coup,” he said. In this framework, «any conflict What happens in Burma of a violent nature can be transferred to India ”, Olivera concluded.

Geopolitical dialogues.

Our political analyst and master’s degree in International Relations, Santiago Caetano, continued his analysis of the processes of cooperation for development in the frameworks of political coordination at the global level.
