“We are a government in which we work together, therefore, we knew what the different portfolios were coming to. Each ministry had an agenda that was related to its function, to make it clear,” Fernández pointed out.
Under this line, the head of Social Development, Jeanette Vegaindicated that “we are not going to take responsibility for rumours, we are all here together as a government team (…) We are working together as a government, and therefore we coordinate and inform each other of all the activities we do.”
The Interior portfolio denied the rumors
From the National Congress, the undersecretary of the Interior, Manuel Monsalveclarified that the rumor that both he and the Minister of Defense were unaware of Siches’ trip to Temucuicui is false.
“So false, that the head of the Public Security division of the Undersecretary of the Interior, Carolina Garrido, was in the delegation on behalf of the Undersecretary of the Interior, therefore, this information is completely false,” he stressed.
When asked about the trip, Monsalve said that the visit “has been worked on jointly by the Ministry of the Interior, that is, it is not that this planning is from the minister or the undersecretary. The undersecretary was even going to attend, but since he was also scheduled to attend a week later, it was considered that it was not necessary.
He also denied Marcelo Catrillanca, who stated that there was improvisation during the visit. “I am not going to delve into what he said, but just remember that there was a meeting planned at his house, which was the place where the delegation was going when the events occurred, therefore, it is evident that he had previously talked with he”.
Finally, he expressed that “I know that there is interest in installing the wedge of error, but this was a trip that was planned prior to the change of command, a series of coordination, dialogue and planning actions had already been developed. Was it planned? It was planned”
