Deputy Ope Pasquet, from the Colorado Party, spoke about the situation of national politics and referred to two cases in particular, that of Adrian Pena and the one of Carolina Ache. Both have had to resign their positions due to different scandals, but for Pasquet, Ache’s case is much more serious than Peña’s.

Adrián Peña resigned from the Ministry of the Environment after it was discovered that he had said he had a university degree that he has not obtained, while Carolina Ache had to resign from the Undersecretary of Foreign Relations due to information he received about the Uruguayan drug trafficker Sebastian Marset and that he did not share with Foreign Minister Francisco Bustillo during an interpellation in the Senate.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Interior knew who Sebastián Marset was: “He is a very dangerous and heavy drug trafficker”

The Minister of the Interior and the Chancellor had denied that they knew last November that Marset…

Pasquet believes that they are different cases

For Pasquet, Peña’s case is simply a “personal and banal” mistake, while Ache’s is much more serious, since it was an interpellation in the Senate and the information he received should have been shared. In addition, Ache belonged to the Ciudadanos sector of the Colorado Party and his relationship with the party suffered after his resignation.

Pasquet also stressed that Peña’s resignation is a fair and sufficient consequence for the mistake he made. For him, it is not necessary to sanction Peña beyond his resignation, since the fact that he has lost the most important position in his life is punishment enough. In the case of Ache, Pasquet considers that his resignation was the consequence of a mistake he made serious political consequences.

Pasquet has concluded then that the cases of Peña and Ache are different in severity and consequences, and each one must be evaluated and sanctioned proportionally to the scope of the offense committed.
