According to official information, Judge Yorleny Campos Campos said that after reviewing the proposal submitted by the prosecutors and defence on the progress of the investigation, she found no grounds to order a preventive detention.

Lead prosecutor, Patricia Badilla, told the press Thursday afternoon that she has appealed the decision. Now, the case will go to the Tribunal Penal de Hacienda, to confirm the release or impose any injunction against the defendants.
