STATEMENT FROM THE EMBASSY OF ECUADOR ON THE ISAIAS BROTHERS

For years, Ecuadorian authorities have been clear in their stance that convicted criminals and Ecuadorian citizens William and Roberto Isaias must be extradited from Miami back to Ecuador. These two brothers, former bankers turned fugitives, have been legally tried and, after 13 years of litigation, convicted of embezzling hundreds of millions of dollars from their bank before fleeing to the United States. Their crime harmed the lives of millions of our citizens, yet today they continue to live in luxury in Miami. We expect that the Government of the United States, including Members of Congress, would not support these convicted criminals, as we still hope to have them back in Ecuador to answer for their crimes.
