The Panel on the Independent Special Prosecutor (PFEI) requested the defense of Governor Wanda Vázquez – who requested the dismissal of the investigation in her counter-evidence of the accusations made with one of the members of the panel, the former judge Rubén Vélez Torres.
As part of the evidence presented in that motion, attorney Edgar Vega Pabón attached images of Vélez Torres' daughter in political activities as well as other press articles.
"No photo was included that corresponds to the aforementioned Panel member, Lic. Vélez Torres. However, yesterday, the news media had her represented showing alleged photos of Lic. Vélez Torres, in activities of partisan political character ", reads the resolution signed by the president of the PFEI, Nydia Cotto Vives, as well as by Vélez Torres himself.
"Faced with such imputations, we are struck that they were not part of the annexes that he submitted with his brief to this institution. Consequently, it is ORDERED that on or before next Monday, July 27, 2020, 9:00 in the morning, present before the Panel on the FEl, the alleged photos of Mr. Vélez Torres, duly authenticated by certification that includes the activity and date in which they were taken and the means from which they came, "ruled the PFEI .
The case against Vázquez before the PFEI relates to the partisan political management of Adsef supplies for earthquake victims in the southwest of the Island at the beginning of the year.
