Ecuador: The Case of the 10 from Luluncoto

Fadua Tapia, Cristina Campaña, Abigaíl Heras, Royce Gómez, Pablo Castro, Santiago Gallegos, Víctor Vinueza, Luis Merchán, Héctor Estupiñán y César Zambrano are the 10 from Luluncoto who were detained on 3rd March 2012 in the Sol Rojo operative. Accused of wanting to threaten the security of the State and of belonging to the Popular Combatants Group (GCP), they lost their freedom when they went to discuss the policies of the government of Ecuador in a house in southern Quito. Police found notebooks, diaries, posters of Che Guevara, newspapers in their possession, considered subversive material.

On 25th July, the Interior Minister reported that the evidence presented by the Prosecutor's Office was sufficient to presume that the accused persons committed the offence.

Fadua Tapia received substitution measures for her state of pregnancy; in an interview published by El Mercurio she said that the police did not respect her pregnancy and ordered her to remain face down on the floor. The YouTube channel EcuadorFreeNetwork News Agency published a video with testimonies from relatives of the detainees, where they mention that on April 26, in the early hours of the morning, there were simultaneous forced entries at the houses of the detainees' families in several cities in the country:
