Were Armando Benedetti and Roy Barreras fighting? Someone took photos of them, and in them, they seem to be arguing. It happened in the halls of Congress.
Until after 5:30 p.m. this Tuesday, neither Armando Benedetti nor Roy Barreras, senators of the Historical Pact and members of Gustavo Petro’s campaign for that movement, have spoken about the controversial photos in which they seem to be fighting.
About both senators, who have not escaped controversy, different versions have emerged since they joined the Pact.
This Tuesday, photos of him have gone viral on social networks.
You see a Roy Barreras, apparently annoyed, and a Benedetti, who would be scared, leaning against the wall, while whoever “rebukes” him, points his finger at him.
Since Sunday when Petro came out the winner with more than eight million votes, but with Rodolfo Hernández also as the winner with another almost six million votes, the entire battery of the Historic Pact campaign has focused on pointing to the former mayor of Bucaramanga. But Benedetti has been ‘more cautious’, unlike Barreras.
Benedetti has been in Congress since 2002, and Roy Barreras since 2006, his time with congressmen has been one of the criticisms of Petro, “is that the change?”, they demand.
Many others believe that the political ‘experience’ of both senators has helped him.
About the photos where they would supposedly be fighting, until now they have not spoken in the media or on social networks, where they permanently send messages, clarifying the “scene”.

Although Barreras took it ‘with humor’:
Dialogue: Roy: “If you don’t listen to Caracol Radio every morning I’ll shave you!” Benedetti: “Take painting, no one shaves me! I’m going to shave myself on the day of Petro’s possession! “ https://t.co/CAnndTBPcH

Last week there was controversy around Benedetti and Barreras, because supposedly WhatsApp chats had been leaked in which both ‘organized’ the armed strike of the Clan del Golfo.
Checkers and information verifiers denied that.
