Eleventh Penal Judge Eduardo De La Torre López has called former Minister of Social Development Guillermo Ferrufino and his wife Milena Edith Ferrufino Vallarino to trial on charges of unjustified enrichment.

The judge concluded that, based on the evidence submitted by prosecutors, the couple could not justify the amount of money that they made when the minister as in office.

In turn, the judge decided to dismiss temporarily charges against several family members of the former minister,including Miguel Angel Herrera Marcos, Martha Elyna Herrera Marcos, Gaston Enrique Regis Ramos and Roberto Delgado Augusto Herrera.

An audit of the former minister's finances concluded that he had spent some $3.4 million during his time in office, while his revenue was $1.1 million.

The judge also allowed prosecutors to investigate Fotis Lymberópulos, a friend of the former minister, for crimes against public administration. that case is related to the rental of helicopters by the ministry.
