Ortega lashes out at Colombian and Chilean presidents: “You are a little Pinochet Boric and the other one, Petro, a disgrace”

The Sandinista dictator accused the Colombian president of “having sold himself to imperialism” and of doing “business” with the United States in drug trafficking. Regarding the Chilean president, he said that he is still tied to the laws of dictator Augusto Pinochet, who ruled that country with an iron fist between 1973 and 1990

During the parade commemorating the 44th anniversary of the founding of the National Police, dictator Daniel Ortega accused the president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, of being a “traitor” and a “shame” for being at the “service” of the United States; and the president of Chile, Gabriel Boric, of being a “pinochetito” for being tied to the laws of dictator Augusto Pinochet.

Ortega began his speech by recognizing the firmness of the National Police and the Military with his dictatorship. He then focused his speech against “others” whose cowardice made them become “agents of the empire” to betray themselves and those who “gave their lives” when they were in the guerrilla movements.

“I want to refer to the president of Colombia. Yes, he was a guerrilla, incredible. After the fight he led, where many Colombian brothers fell in combat, Petro has become president of Colombia, (and Colombia) in a State at the service of the Yankees. A State that is full of military bases of the Yankee empire”, expressed the Sandinista dictator.

Ortega expressed that the Colombian president is “a shame” for all those who fought in the guerrilla movement he headed.

“Petro said he was anti-imperialist when he was fighting with the guerrillas, And what are you waiting for Petro to remove the Yankee military bases in Colombia? If you have any dignity, expel and close the bases”, the dictator shouted.

The Sandinista leader also accused the Colombian president of being involved in drug trafficking together with the United States and of doing “business” with drug trafficking.

“The Yankees have a false and hypocritical attitude regarding the fight against drug trafficking. And in terms of the fight against money laundering because in the United States are the biggest banks that receive the largest amounts of billions and billions of money from drug traffickers. There is a combination of lack of values and humanity, first of all from Yankee imperialism, and then from these traitors who betrayed the comrades who gave their lives in combat with the guerrillas they headed,” Ortega repeated.

Hours before the parade in commemoration of the 44th anniversary of the founding of the National Police, the Colombian president expressed his solidarity with the poet Gioconda Belli, whose house in Nicaragua was confiscated by the police. In a tweet he posted on the social network X, Petro compared Ortega to Pinochet because the Chilean dictator, like the Nicaraguan, raided the properties of poets during his regime.

Last month the Colombian president expressed concern over the arbitrary seizure of Central American University. Petro also condemned “vehemently” all measures that limit freedom of religion, teaching and expression in Nicaragua.

Colombia was one of the countries that offered nationality to the more than 300 people denationalized by the Ortega-Murillo regime, whom it accused of “treason” and banished from the country.

In addition to lashing out against the president of Colombia, the Sandinista dictator also took the opportunity to brand Gabriel Boric, president of Chile, as a “little Pinochet”, he also assured that this country does not live in democracy because it is still “chained” to the laws left by the dictator Augusto Pinochet and “to imperialism”.

This week Ortega said in a public act that Chileans still long for Pinochet and that the carabineros are not like the Nicaraguan Police, but are trained to assassinate the people. That statement prompted a formal complaint from the Chilean Government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which according to the Chilean media La Tercera, was delivered this very afternoon.

“And now as if they were stung by what I said, a truth, that the Chilean military and carabineros have been murderers, that they murdered an entire nation and an entire project 50 years ago when they carried out the coup against the martyr president, heroic Salvador Allende, they have been upset because I said they are criminals,” Ortega explained.

Ortega insisted that the Chilean president has not condemned the military and carabineros who repressed and killed more than thirty people during the demonstrations that occurred in Chile between 2019 and 2020.

“Those carabineros that the Chilean government says are angels and are loved by the Chilean people. The current president of Chile was shouting criticizing Piñera -previous president of Chile- and saying that if he came to power he was going to put carabineros in jail. In Piñeira’s government there were more than nine thousand young people repressed by the carabineros who lost their sight, they were blinded. Those are crimes that you cannot cover up, you cannot cover them up, Boris, Boris, you cannot cover them up Boris, you are a pinochetito, Boris, that’s you, a pinochetito”, repeated the Sandinista dictator.

Gabriel Boric has been one of the most contentious presidents against the dictatorship. Since the beginning of his presidential mandate, he has internationally denounced human rights violations and has demanded other states to condemn the Nicaraguan state.
