In case of Byron Castillo It was terminated before the TAS and it is expected that in the next few hours or days the final verdict on this event that is highly commented on in the world of football will be revealed.
As is known, the Chilean delegation accuses the player who plays in León of Liga MX of having falsified his documents and that he is not of Ecuadorian nationality, but Colombian.
In this context, Peru joined the lawsuit and showed as evidence Jaime Jara, a former Ecuadorian police officer who stated that Byron Castillo is Colombian by birth.
The former police officer in question led an investigation for the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF) in 2019 to verify the true nationality of the footballer, denying the version defended by the player and all of Ecuador in the run-up to the Qatar 2022 World Cup. With that experience, he presented himself to give his testimony and spoke at the FPF’s turn, Chilean media reported.
“We collect the documentation in Colombia and from the Civil Registry of Ecuador to determine that the player has Colombian nationality”, He declared before his surprise presentation at TAS.
On the other hand, Eduardo Carlezzo, a lawyer for the Chilean delegation, presented the pertinent documentation where he assures that the player who defends the colors of the Ecuadorian team lied about where he came from.
In that sense, he specified “it is more than proven that the player is Colombian. What will happen next is something else, ”he told El Deportivo.
“We went to the last consequences, we are convinced. Both in FIFA and in the TAS it was accredited. The result or what fails the TAS is absolutely uncertain for us. We are waiting for justice to prevail. We stay calm. We did everything to show that the player is Colombian”, he asserted.
