Panama Sends Fugitive Ecuadorian Politician Back to Quito

QUITO – Panama has extradited to Ecuador a former Ecuadorian lawmaker who was sentenced in absentia to 10 years in prison for his role in a triple-murder, the Andean nation’s attorney general said Friday.

“#URG Galo Lara is being extradited,” Attorney General Galo Chiriboga wrote on Twitter.

Panama revoked Lara’s asylum in June.

Lara, a former member of Ecuador’s national assembly, was acquitted in December 2012 on charges that he ordered the killing of a couple and their son in the town of Quinsaloma.

In September, however, the acquittal was overturned and the politician was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison as the “intellectual author” of the triple-murder.

Four other people found guilty of carrying out the crime were each sentenced to 20 years behind bars.
