Deputy UDI: Excuses are not enough
From the UDI, the Álvaro Carter, also a member of the Defense Commission, "the apologies offered by the commander in chief are sufficient in the political sense, but in the sense of the people not. How is it possible that only your records have been known by a filtered recording?"
"People in towns who know that there are weapons of war will continue to suffer, and that has another advantage: Are the Carabineros prepared to face such weapons? It is highly likely that"he questioned.
Meanwhile, the president of the union, the senator Jacqueline Van Rysselberghe, lowered the profile a little to the situation and ensured that although "not the best way it occurred, through leaks," the general would likely deliver the record to the Public Prosecution Service.
"No one can think that when you have a meeting with 800 people, none of them speak or filter the background. I imagine that since he made this meeting, he intended to provide the background to the Prosecutor's Office"he assured her.
