Ady Pacheco Puts Off Testimony to Next Week; She Will Bring Attorney with Her

Ady Pacheco

Senior Immigration Officer Ady Pacheco has been one of the most highly anticipated witnesses at the Senate Special Select Committee’s public hearings. Her name has been directly tied to the Won Hong Kim affair by former boss Maria Marin. It also appears multiple times in the Auditor General’s Reports in relation to various activities within the Department between 2011 and 2013. But the timing of Pacheco’s first pregnancy made her unavailable for testimony earlier this year, and having now recovered, she was first in the witness chair this morning in Belmopan. However, the appearance was brief, as she asked to be re-scheduled for next Wednesday, June twenty-first, due to the absence of her attorney, David Morales. Here is that exchange which opened today’s public hearing.

 

Aldo Salazar, Chair, Senate Special Select Committee

“I’ve been in communication with your attorney, Mr. Morales, since last night, and we indicated to him that it was the decision of the Committee, due to the late hour of your request for counsel [to be] present, that we saw it as your obligation to attend and make any request for consideration in person, before the entire Committee. Therefore, we can proceed to entertain or listen to your request.”

 

Ady Pacheco, Immigration Officer

“At this point, I stated to my lawyer that I am willing and will cooperate fully with answering all your questions, but I will do so with his presence if that’s okay with you. That’s basically it; I will answer all questions with my lawyer being present. And if we could re-schedule for next week Wednesday, we both will be here.”

 

Aldo Salazar

“He indicated that he is available for next week?”

 

Ady Pacheco

“Yes, he has indicated that.”

    After lawyering up, her answer to all questions will be, “I refuse to answer on the grounds that it might intend to incriminate me.” Maybe if she is giving immunity from prosecution, she just might spill the beans on the whole damn bunch of crooks.
