Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry denies alleged Noboa scandal in Spain

Quito, Mar 21 (Prensa Latina) The Foreign Ministry of Ecuador denied having received any communication from the government of Spain for an alleged disrespectful attitude of President Daniel Noboa during his visit to that country last January.

Through a statement, the Ministry of State denied the accusations of the Spanish media El Debate, which reported an alleged party and the improper use of the police escort during the visit of the president.

According to El Debate, an alleged scandal provoked by Noboa in a restaurant in Madrid would have motivated the complaint of the Spanish Foreign Ministry to the Embassy of Ecuador.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of this South American nation assured that the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs also denied this information.

In the report of El Debate, it is assured that Noboa asked to be taken to a ‘farra’ (party), when he was leaving a restaurant, where he had just had dinner.

Among the attendants to this dinner, in which Noboa allegedly “threw bills in the air”, would have been the advisor of the Presidency, Diana Jácome Silva; the Undersecretary of the Presidential Office, Cynthia Gellibert and the Ambassador of Ecuador in Spain, Wilma Andrade.

Assemblyman of the Citizen Revolution movement Blasco Luna demanded today that the National Assembly should issue a statement and summon the officials named in the report of the Spanish newspaper, so that they can give their version of the facts.
