Vive Lucha Indigena! Viva Hugo Blanco! Viva La Selva! Viva Paul McAuley.
The Superior Court of Justice ruled today Loreto accept the habeas corpus of British Priest Paul McAuley against the deportation order issued by the Ministry of Interior.
McAuley was accused by immigration authorities of violating the rules imposed on foreign residents to promote protest and intervene in domestic politics.
"It was a pleasant surprise this morning when I received the notification that recognizes my right to free transit and will no longer be expelled ," said McAuley.
His lawyers immediately filed a habeas corpus alleging that the environmental group had not been properly notified nor had the right to defense and due process.
