They ask that former President Saca and his wife be forced to pay more than $4 million for illicit enrichment – ​​Diario La Huella

Prosecutors from the Anti-Corruption Unit presented a request for forced execution before the First Civil Chamber of San Salvador, to force former president Elías Antonio Saca and his wife Ana Ligia Mixco Sol de Saca to pay $4,482,307.53.

When both were convicted of illicit enrichment, they were ordered to return that amount of money to the State since the Attorney General’s Office proved that it was the unjustified increase in their assets.

On January 5, 2021, the judges of the Chamber resolved that Saca did not demonstrate the legal origin of the money, evidencing an unjustified increase in assets of $3,892,698.71.

While the former first lady, Ana Ligia Mixco Sol de Saca, had illicit enrichment of $589,608.82.

The Saca couple, in addition to being sentenced to repay $4,482,307.53 to the State, were disqualified from holding public office for a period of ten years.

“This sentence was pronounced and because there was no voluntary compliance, we are forcibly executing the sentence,” said an anti-corruption prosecutor.

This process has its origin on March 7, 2016, when the CSJ magistrates ordered the civil process which was presented by the Prosecutor’s Office on April 21 of the same year.

After analyzing the request, the First Civil Chamber decided on May 31, 2016 to admit the lawsuit and the Saca couple were notified until July 17, 2017 to exercise their defense and present their arguments.

The Anti-Corruption Unit sued them for illicit enrichment of $5,165,000, but the magistrates at the time of ruling ruled that the amount was $4.4 million.

When the process was presented, Saca’s children were included; Gerardo Antonio, José Alejandro and Christian Eduardo Saca Mixco; and the company Promotora de Comunicaciones SA de CV but the Chamber excluded them considering that the three did not have the status of public officials or employees.
