Police: Soldier was not forced to plead guilty

Henry David Zerpa, national coordinator of criminal investigations from the Scientific and Criminal Investigation Force (Cicpc), Tuesday denied that soldier José Gregorio Acuña Gil had been forced to plead guilty on charges of burning two mates held in a punishment room of a quarter in the eastern city of Cumaná.
That Acuña was forced to plead guilty "has been ruled out," Zerpa said, as he was allegedly questioned in the presence of military prosecutor Julio César Araque and 8th fundamental rights prosecutor Lino Benavides.

However, it is precisely these prosecutors whom Acuña's family is blaming for having forced the young soldier to sign a paper without reading it.
