Message from Ambassador Francisco Borja in Commemoration of the Battle of Pichincha

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Today, we commemorate the 193rd anniversary of the heroic battle of Pichincha where the Ecuadorian people brought about the liberation of the country.

In this date, we commemorate the liberation of our land and our people, but there is a battle that we are still fighting and that’s the one for the progress of our country.

In recent years, our country has fought for a better Ecuador, where we’ve eradicated poverty with health and education. An Ecuador of equal opportunities, equity, inclusion, full employment, and justice services.

Ecuador has already changed and we are still pursuing new opportunities and development. We are a country of achievements but also a country of change.

During this May 24th, let’s celebrate our freedom and continue the fight to consolidate our achievements.

ECUADOR’S FORENSIC EVIDENCE IN THE CHEVRON III ARBITRATION HAS BEEN DISCLOSED

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

The International Arbitral Tribunal of the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague, has disclosed Ecuador’s forensic reports that contradicts Chevron’s accusation that the Lago Agrio Plaintiffs “ghostwrote” the first-instance Judgment. This technical evidence shows that Chevron’s main argument in its case theory against Ecuador is fabricated on the lies of the company’s payed witness Alberto Guerra, who claims to be the author of the Judgment. The forensic reports that we share with the international community show the following:

· That none of the orders Guerra claims to have authored were actually originated on his computer.
· That Guerra didn’t receive any of the Plaintiffs’ allegedly unfilled work product to create the Judgement.
· That the hard drives of the Judge who issued the Judgment contain evidence consistent with the conclusion that he drafted the Judgment on his computers.
· That the Judge who issued the Judgment conducted legal research on the Internet to support his deliberation and criteria.
· That the document that eventually became the Judgment was created on the Judge computer and was saved, edited and contained increasing percentages of final Judgment text over the appropriate time period.
