the former Senator Jaime Orpis returned to reaffirm that it is innocent, in the context of the case Corpesca.
A new video sharing on their networks, the former parliamentarian who resigned from the UDI claims to be innocent of the charges of bribery, and revealed that around 19 Senators made reference to a political agreement in their speeches on the Senate floor.
«I not committed bribery, I was never available to Corpesca as the Prosecutor claims in the indictment. In the Fisheries Act there was a political agreement between the Government and a part of the opposition. Nineteen Senators made reference to this agreement and all are cited as witnesses to confirm the existence of this Pact,»said Orpis.
The former Senator said that «Although some were against, yes gave faith of its existence (of the agreement) to mention it in their speeches in the Chamber of the Senate, although the prosecution in inexcusable and biased way omits it entirely in the indictment».
«I voted according to the political agreement and not the interests of Corpesca as the prosecution has presented it in the indictment. «I must reiterate one more time: I was not bought, not made bribery and with much conviction will defend this truth in the courts of Justice», said.
