The Broad Front defines a line of action for the chats about spying on Abdala

He Executive Secretariat of the Broad Front (FA) meets this Monday to determine what measures will be taken by the opposition after it became known that the president Luis Lacalle Pou was aware of his former custodian’s espionage on the president ofl PIT-CNT, Marcelo Abdala.

Last week a new scandal came to light following the publication of the book “He Astesian case. “A plot of espionage and corruption in the Executive Tower”, of the journalist Lucas Silva. There, the investigation focuses on the espionage of the former head of presidential security on Abdala, after he crashed in 2022.

According to the chats exposed by Silva and detailed by the weekly Busqueda, the former custodian asked the General Directorate of Repression of Illicit Drug Trafficking (Dgtrid) to investigate whether the president of the PIT-CNT had gone to a drug-selling “deal” before having the traffic accident in question.

With this, and based on the repercussions that the scandal generated in the political sphere, from the Wide Front They decided to meet this Monday at noon to determine what steps to follow. However, as confirmed to La Diaria from the Popular Participation Movement (MPP)there is a possibility that no measure will be taken immediately, although it is clear that a mobilization will be carried out in defense of democracy and institutions, which was called by the Communist Party and supported by Socialist Party (PS).

The reaction of the Broad Front

They barely met in the news in the Astesian case and the role of the president, leaders of the Frente Amplio came out to strongly question the news. The first of them was the presidential candidate Yamandú Orsi: “What is published in two media today shows that, in addition to spying on opposition senators, they wanted to invent a case against the president of the PIT-CNT. It was Astesiano, from the Suarez residence and the president of the Republic was aware. “Will there be limits?” He posted on his social networks.

In the afternoon, the president of the left coalition, Fernando Pereira, rebuked Lacalle Pou for keeping quiet information that is in their possession. “The president cannot say that he did not know. The president knew that they were going to go to that pantry because they thought it was a mouth. This chat hurts politics, the President of the Republic,” he questioned.

For Pereira, “it is evident that the president knew more than he said about this issue,” and that the scandal “can only be resolved in one way: by saying everything he knows.”

For his part, Senator Mario Bergara announced in an interview with Subrayado that possible parliamentary actions are being discussed. “We are talking at the level of the FA bench to see if we carry out parliamentary action that at least involves discussing the issue and calling for responsibility. Let’s see the format,” he explained.

However, he recalled that the President of the Republic cannot be questioned, so another possible solution would be to make “a call to a minister associated with the issue to a commission or General Commission or, eventually, an interpellation.”
