The Mexican student, who was injured in the Colombian bombing on an
Ecuadorean FARC camp in March 2008, was not able to be voted into her
country’s parliament and so avoid prosecution in Ecuador and Colombia,
that want her tried for respectively endangering national security and
Mexico’s Workers Party had included the controversial student to its list hoping her election would automatically give her parliamentary immunity and Interpol would not have a chance of arresting and etraditing her.
However, the limited results of the leftist party only allowed it to have seats for the first 13 on the party’s candidates list, excluding Morett.
Morett’s defense lawyer told press agency AFP the student will not be extradited, because she claims “political percecution” in both Ecuador and Colombia. She asked Interpol to take her name off the list of international suspects, but has had no repsonse.
