Editor's Comment: At issue - can this recording be used as evidence in the CEMIS case. And, should Ernesto Perez Balladares be held criminally responsible for having violated the privacy of De La Hoz by first recording the meeting, and then giving it over to the press. Reportedly there was a meeting between Ernesto Perez Balladares and Manuel De La Hoz, which Perez Balladares recorded without De La Hoz's knowledge on both audio and video. Also present at the meeting was the former Housing Minister Roosevelt Thayer. Perez Balladares then gave copies of the recording over to Ana Matilde Gomez, who was the Attorney General at the time. And because the CEMIS case was being investigated by the Supreme Court, she gave the recordings to them. Then (of course) they made their way to the press, and no one is claiming responsibility for that.
