Ligia Fallas, a member of Frente Amplio (FA), used her social networks to attack former President Laura Chinchilla and the former president and former secretary of the OAS, Miguel Angel Rodríguez, for visiting Venezuela. Both former rulers traveled to that country to witness the symbolic consultation called by the opposition alliance to ask the people about the reform to the the Political Constitution proposed by Nicolás Maduro.
Chinchilla, declared non grata along with ex-president Miguel Angel Rodriguez and 3 other Latin American former heads of state, followed the outcome of the consultation that won the support of 7.6 million people in opposition to the changes promoted by Maduro.
Fallas, a confessed follower of chavismo, used her profiles on Facebook and Twitter to criticize Chinchilla and the other observers.
Laura Chinchilla in Venezuela, taking selfies with terrorists. Surely by mandate of the old gargoyle. Our people protest against the national shame of this intervention and terrorism support against the Bolivarian people of Venezuela that only wants peace,”
published Fallas on Monday in her Facebook page.
Venezuela later declared five Latin American former heads of state as “personae non gratae”, an action that was thought to be reprehensible by Manuel González, Costa Rican chancellor.
They, like thousands and thousands of people in Venezuela and abroad, have expressed their concern about the current situation. This reaction of the Venezuelan government is not surprising, since they show contempt for anyone who think differently,”
said the diplomat.
