Three convicted as members of a criminal network of wood theft in the province of Arauco must effectively carry out the prison sentence issued by the court.

The Supreme Court rejected the protections presenteddenouncing as illegal that the Court of Appeals revoked the probation granted by the Cañete Court.

At the beginning of the year, Walter Araneda, Ricardo Escobar and Guillermo Mesa received a sentence of 5 years of supervised release, after an agreement with the Prosecutor’s Office, which offered the defendants an abbreviated procedure in exchange for collaboration with the investigation, also avoiding the Public Ministry an oral trial.

The ruling with the sanction for the crimes of wood theft, money laundering and tax fraud It was appealed by Forestal Arauco, as plaintiff, an appeal accepted by the Court of Concepción, when decreeing the effective fulfillment of the sentences in prison.

Against this resolution, the defenses of the convicted persons presented appeals for protection, which were rejected by the Supreme Court, and therefore the sentence of the appeal court was upheld, evaluating in the case of the defense lawyer, Ángela Contreras, a last resort for reconsideration.
