A transversal rejection had the media raid of the Gope to the headquarters of the Communes Party, in the framework of the Karina Oliva case, and explanations were even demanded from Minister Rodrigo Delgado, head of the Interior portfolio, responsible for the Carabineros and their actions.
The deputy Carmen Hertz (PC) was the one who took the post and officiated at the Minister of the Interior and Public Security, to clarify the role of the portfolio in what the communist parliamentarian described as a “shameful” police act.
The first to come out to give explanations was the Undersecretary General of the Presidency, Máximo Pavez, however he affirmed that the steps to carry out the raid “are not actions that are coordinated by the government.”
Along the same lines, the minister of the Interior, Rodrigo Delgado, denied political interventionism as the RD deputy Giorgio Jackson accused in the raid on Commons.
“With the same force of the reproach to the surrender of $ and the support for a total investigation, we have to say that to mount a raid with submachine guns to the opposition political party, citing the media in prime time, during electoral silence it has only one name: INTERVENTIONISM “Jackson criticized on Twitter.
The answer did not take long: “The deputy does not know, or anyone who expresses it, does not know the separation of the powers of the State,” Delgado said.
“The role of the Government is to have a relationship with the police, but the investigation is carried out through mandates from the Public Ministry to carry out investigations,” said the Minister.
Delgado pointed out that everything would have been different if it had been done in a consensual way, that is, that Comunes had provided the keys.
“That consensus was not achieved and it was necessary to enter. So, the GOPE is asked to do so, because the place was locked, using the protocol whatever the place. There is a GOPE protocol for entry and registration,” clarified the Minister.
The raid “does not go through a decision of the Government or a specific minister. It went through the Public Ministry,” Delgado concluded.
While the Government spokesman, Jaime Bellolio, after voting in the Buin commune, stressed to Radio Universe that “this is something where the Government has absolutely nothing to do with it. That is the first thing to clear up.”
The Secretary of State said that he has seen “some lies that some told yesterday. The Government has absolutely nothing to do with it.” And he stated that “of course I would have liked (the procedure) to have been different, or that it had been, I don’t know, on Monday.”
“But there the determination is made by the prosecution and the Guarantee court, the seventh in this case, which is the one that gives that order and we have to abide by what the courts say and what the prosecution maintains. But of course I am I would have liked it to be otherwise, “said the La Moneda spokesperson.
Bellolio said that “so that it could not be seen that it had something to do with the elections. They were themselves, the candidacy of Karina Oliva and other people who began to say certain things in recent days.”
“So, what I want to say is that the Government has absolutely nothing to do with it. This is from another power of the State and we want all elections to always be transparent, in peace, very participatory, as the day is being. today, “he added.
The government spokesman also criticized that the raid was carried out with prior notice to the press. “There is one thing that has become a custom that I think is not good, which is that some of these seizures or others are made with prior notice to the press. It has also touched us as a Government,” he concluded.
