With a harsh letter addressed to Alberto Fernández, former Security Minister Patricia Bullrich once again denied the complaint for allegedly sending “war material” to Bolivia to repress the supporters of Evo Morales during his departure from the Government, in November 2019.
He did so through a text that he disseminated on social networks, where he replied the words of President Alberto Fernández to his Bolivian counterpart Luis Arce, to whom he said he felt “very ashamed because Argentina has not behaved well.”
“Pain and shame cause the recklessness, impudence and speed with which you commit the Argentine State by acknowledging such an accusation without the slightest inquiry or proof, just because at that time a president of a party other than his was ruling the country, “the former official’s letter began.
The head of the PRO remarked in the letter that the management of Cambiemos was always characterized by supporting “democracy in the continent” and questioned the Argentine president.
“The complexity of the matter and the honor of the Republic demanded of you greater diligence before compromise the honor of the nation apologizing unjustifiably as soon as he received a copy of a letter whose alleged author he does not even recognize, “Bullrich added in the text.
In the letter, the former minister explained that Morales’ resignation in 2019 “increased the unrest” in Bolivia “due to the aforementioned president’s attempt for a new reelection and the accusations of electoral fraud and subsequent annulment of the elections.”
“The government of President Mauricio Macri fulfilled its duty to protect the Argentine Embassy in Bolivia, protection that reached not only to the ambassador and diplomatic personnel, but also to two resigning ministers of the government of Mr. Evo Morales: the Minister of Government, Carlos Romero, and the Minister of Planning, Mariana Prado Noya, “he said in the text.
At the same time, he pointed to the Minister of Security, Sabina Frederic, because the report of the complaint was received in July of last year. And he added that the actions were carried out in conjunction with the management of the Frente de Todos because they were “in full transition” of government.
“We are talking about November 18 and 19, we had already lost the elections. All this was done in conjunction with the incoming government. We did humanitarian aid, we took care of journalists, we took care of the families of the Argentines who lived in Bolivia. And now they want to accuse us, “he said in a dialogue with radio Miter.

This Monday, it was the Minister of Justice, Martín Soria, who accused of having committed “misdeeds in other countries” to former President Macri, along with Bullrich, the then Defense Minister Oscar Aguad, Foreign Minister Jorge Faurie, and added the senior Gendarmerie commanders, among other officials.
“Macri loaded the weapons and the ammunition with which the Bolivian dictatorship massacred its people, “he said in a dialogue with Radio Diez. And he announced that an investigation could be opened in Argentina for” serious crimes. “
The letter that the Bolivian authorities showed to denounce the collaboration of Mauricio Macri in the removal of Evo Morales.
Bullrich’s reply in his text denies the complaint from the State of Bolivia and asks the current authorities of the Casa Rosada to give explanations of the control over the operations that were carried out in Bolivia and the proper use of the material, “because the transfer of gendarmes occurred within the end of Macri’s mandate that then passed during “seven months of the government that took office that same day.”
“In the midst of the pain to which the Argentine people are subjected by the mourning of thousands of deaths that should not have occurred, by the terrible handling of a pandemic that almost all of the countries have faced in a better way, by bankruptcy and poverty, you have taken the time to embark on these smear operations, without even assessing the damage you were causing the nation with your reckless response, “Bullrich reproached President Fernández.
Finally, he concluded that when the complaint is cleared up, “we Argentines will have checked once again to what extent you have demoted the presidential institution and has filled his nation with pain and shame. “
