Last Saturday night the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic made public the file that it prepared – with information from the United States Department of Justice – against General Salvador Cienfuegos for alleged relations with drug trafficking, however, most of the file , divided into two volumes with more than a thousand pages, is crossed out with black blocks. The most personal statements in the lengthy document are barely legible, the key answers, of course, are crossed out as are hundreds of pages in black. However, the conclusion of the record is that the evidence accumulated by the Department of Justice is insufficient to prosecute Cienfuegos. In our eyes it is a document crossed out in large black blocks that sometimes completely hide the body of the text in a huge black rectangle, sometimes in narrow black blocks that hide paragraphs behind, on other pages you can see the spaces between the blocks that are phrases, sometimes it is possible to distinguish individual words, all of them ghostly, as when between pixels we can barely distinguish a silhouette. In any case, the file is illegible. For many it was a bad joke, a meme, a bad poem, an uninteresting one, but it seems to be anything other than a key file in the Cienfuegos case in an Administration that boasts of its transparency. We have a verdict and a long document crossed out in small, medium and large black blocks: the specters of crucial information.
