It will resume in October.

Spanish version

Temas:

A few minutes the preliminary hearing began in the case of alleged irregularities in the purchase of tire rims by the National Assistance Program (PAN) during the administration of Rafael Guardia Jaén, it was suspended by 15th Criminal Court Judge Leslie Loaiza.

The judge acted on a motion by defense lawyers for Guardia Jaén, who arrived in handcuffs. Defense attorneys requested the delay so they could review an audit carried out by the Comptroller, which was delivered to prosecutors Friday.

The hearing has been rescheduled for Oct. 9.

The irregularities focus on the purchase of 448 rims from a company owned by a friend of Rafael Juarez Guardia, the son of the former director. The PAN paid $163,000 for the rims, while their cost on the open market is closer to $52,000. Additionally, a number of the rims have gone missing.

Charles Bonilla, owner of the company involved, also appeared in handcuffs today and will be detained at the Tinajitas Penitentiary.
