The second anti-corruption prosecutor requested the Fifteenth Criminal Court to make inquiries relevant to determine whether trips made outside the country entrepreneur Poulett Morales are to address her health issues or for other reasons.

Second Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Javier Mitre Burgos made the enquiry on July 25 to Judge Leslie Loaiza.

Morales, who has been barred from leaving the country, will face charges Aug. 18 along with 19 others for irregularities in the purchase of school backpacks.

Prosecutors made their request based on reports in media which stated that Morales has been seen "in bars in Bogotá, Colombia, dancing and enjoying herself."

Morales, through her lawyer Giovani Olmos, requested and received the permission of the court to travel outside the country in June and July. There is another pending trip slated for August.

The prosecutor said that they did not oppose trips for medical issues as long as the proper documentation is submitted. However, he said that the defendant shouldn't be using the trips as a vacation.

"This implies the soundness of her current health," he said.

Morales faces charges of embezzlement, fraud and corruption of public servants.
