Investigate alleged destruction of documents in the merger of Petroecuador and Petroamazonas

Date: Jul 9, 2021

The Prosecutor’s Office and the Comptroller’s Office are investigating an alleged destruction of documents evidenced in the framework of the merger between Petroecuador and Petroamazonas. Explanations have been requested from the former deputy secretary of the Petroamazonas board who today advises the Minister of Energy.

While the Prosecutor’s Office summoned him this Friday to render a voluntary version, as an alleged destruction of records is being investigated. This is due to the lack of endorsement of the minutes of the Petroamazonas board of directors between 2008 and 2016.
