The Minister of the Interior, Izkia Siches, addressed the discussion of the amnesty project for the so-called “prisoners of the social outbreak”.
“I hope there is a discussion in all transparent sectors, rather than a use within the electoral context,” said the Secretary of State, after participating this Tuesday in the Commission for the Protection of Public Order of the Chamber of Deputies.
It is worth mentioning that this Wednesday the project that seeks to grant amnesty to people who were detained between October 7, 2019 and December 9, 2020, in the context of the protests of the social outbreak, will be discussed in the Senate.
The senator of the Socialist Party (PS) Alfonso De Urresti assured that his party has given its support to the initiative and remarked that it is important “to advance in the measures, we even made a substitute indication in the Constitution Commission”.
In addition, Senator De Urresti stressed that it is the job of the Executive “to order and achieve a majority, that is why at the time we criticized Minister Jackson for doing the job, for counting the votes,” and insisted that the “PS is going to back it up.”
