Prosecutor Anderson's friends under investigation
The Attorney General's Office has launched an investigation
on several friends of late prosecutor Danilo Anderson "to
determine whether they accepted any offer in connection with
the case of (Pedro) Carmona's decree," Attorney General Isaías
Rodríguez said in a press release.
Rodríguez stressed that investigations have found that "people close to the late prosecutor, misusing his confidence, may have received material offers from persons who signed a decree whereby Pedro Carmona dismantled public powers."
The Attorney General added that "acceptance of such offers may have lead those people to perpetrate crimes, less serious than murder but equally reprehensible, and they may be eventually subject to criminal prosecution, if proven guilty."
"If investigations find that public officials or any other citizens are involved in crimes different from the murder (of prosecutor Anderson), but which are directly or indirectly related to it, the Attorney General's Office will not hesitate to point to responsibilities."
Finally, Rodríguez said his office has enough evidence that the Guevara brothers and cousin did participate in the bomb attack that killed Anderson on November 18, 2004.
