…Extradition Matter Still Pending

Christian Ebanks

In court this afternoon, Ebanks testified that on the night before the GSU sting he was involved in a bitter dispute with his wife during which he informed her that he was ending their relationship.  Ebanks went on to say that prior to the argument he had sought advice from attorney Oscar Sabido on dissolving the marriage.  When he woke up the following morning, he reportedly took his personal belongings over to his office and shortly after returning home around midday, the residence was raided by police.  News Five asked Ebanks how that arrest led to his detention for the crime in Ecuador.

“Share with us what that has been like as well, in terms of either clearing up your name on that end and what this particular case had to do with what spiraled out of control, if I may.”

“To be honest, both things were something that the issue in Ecuador could and was used to make this seem grandiose.  It should not have been brought into play but it did.  Ecuador is still a matter that is pending, it’s a matter where anyone who knows me and who has discussed the issue with me understands and my friends who are my loyal friends they’re still here.  I mean, you have to understand when somebody is a solid person you basically have people that stick around.  So that being said I’m fine with all that has transpired so far and I just look forward to moving forward and getting my life back on track.”

“Finally, for the record, this case was dismissed as a result of lack of evidence?”

“This case was dismissed because of several reasons [including] lack of evidence.  There were certain procedures that the prosecution couldn’t properly show.  There were some evidence that, for lack of a better word, was fabricated.  So when it was brought in it was easily struck out.”

 

Ebanks has been listed as Ecuador’s most wanted for the murder of Alejandro Martin Teofilo in province of Guayas in 2011.
