Castillo’s lawyer on Chile’s claim: “Nothing is going to happen.  It is a slap of drowning “

In case of Byron Castillo He remains at the center of the world of soccer, after FIFA confirmed that it will investigate the soccer player after Chile’s claim. The lawyer of the soccer player of the Ecuadorian team, José Massú Espinel, went out to explain what is happening and could happen in the following days.

In the first place, the lawyer affirms that what Chileans presented to FIFA are not evidence, but indications. “There is zero chance that Ecuador and the player will be sanctioned. The documents that Chile claims to have are not evidence, they are indications that have never been processed in a trial. If someone alleges that an act is false, he has to prove it in a criminal trial. And in Ecuador there has never been a trial against Byron Castillo, despite the fact that there have always been controversies about whether or not he is Ecuadorian “declared for Olé.

Later, he states that Byron is being confused with his now-deceased brother. “This is a birth certificate of a namesake, which is not even spelled the same. It is from a Bayron with A: Bayron Javier Castillo, when this is Byron David”.

In 2019, Byron was sanctioned by the FEF, since there was an irregularity that the Civil Registry had detected in his record “Initially, the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF) sanctioned the player in 2019 with a precautionary measure for an alleged irregularity that the Civil Registry had detected in a record. It is not that the act was false or forged, but that it was not replicated. The one that exists in Playas (General Villamil) was not replicated in the Quito archive. Faced with this inconvenience, the FEF acted by removing the player’s field card, without a sanctioning procedure or a criminal trial “.

“That is why we initiated a protection action and won the case, because it was recognized that the constitutional rights of Byron Castillo had been violated. The player’s card was returned and the FEF was ordered to repair the damage caused, which did not even appeal the sentence “he added.

José Massú and the document that Chile is presenting as evidence

“In 2021, when Byron Castillo becomes a very relevant player for Ecuadorian soccer, the Civil Registry, based on that same report and without going to a Criminal Court or a Prosecutor’s Office, provisionally suspended his ID until the issue is resolved. inconsistency problem. That is the blessed report that Chileans say they have, the one that already went to a habeas data trial and Byron Castillo won in both instances before constitutional judges and unanimously.”

“The Court recognized him as Ecuadorian by birth and ordered the Civil Registry to return his identity card, in addition to correcting any problem that persisted with his birth certificate. If you come to Ecuador and put three dollars in a machine from the Civil Registry, you get the birth certificate of Byron Castillo Segura without any inconvenience”, he asserted.

The lawyer affirms that Castillo is Ecuadorian and has enough evidence to prove it.

“All this that Chile is saying has never been proven in any trial. Moreover, no one has ever filed a lawsuit against Byron Castillo, but it was he who filed two lawsuits because his rights were being violated. What Chile has are indications, they are not evidence, the evidence only exists in the trials. If they say that this is true, let them come, put a lawsuit and prove it, but they will not be able to do it because Byron Castillo was actually born in Playas (Ecuador) and that birth certificate is of a namesake”, express.

“The Civil Registry report was already dealt with in the habeas data trial and it was ordered that the birth certificate be corrected, because Byron Castillo is Ecuadorian by birth, not by naturalization or anything like that. This is how the constitutional judge, the highest authority in Ecuador, ruled in first and second instance. In addition, the Ministry of the Interior gave Byron Castillo a passport and the Civil Registry has already given him his identity card and his correct birth certificate,” sentenced.

Finally, he trusts that Chile’s complaint will not harm the footballer or the classification of the ‘Tri’ to Qatar 2022. “FIFA does not have any kind of jurisdiction or competence to say that the responsible authorities of each country are below it. You cannot ignore the Ministry of the Interior, the Ecuadorian Civil Registry, much less the constitutional judges. This has already been judged and came out in favor of the player. Ecuador is going to present all this evidence and nothing at all is going to happen, there is nothing to do here. From my point of view, it is a drowning slap by the Chileans”.
