“As they cannot disappear people, they use lawfare (judicial warfare) to kill you”, highlighted in a long radio interview with AM750 the former governor, who arrived the day before to this capital and will be present together with the Argentinean president, Alberto Fernandez, and the former Bolivian president Evo Morales at the launching of the book Operacion Rescate ( Rescue Operation).
In an interview with the program La Garcia, Correa emphasized that the attack against presidents and former presidents in the continent is a new version of the Condor Plan and has two legs: the media axis, which tries to destroy, to generate consensus; and the judicial axis, in which fearful or openly corrupt judges copy the headlines of the press.
During his talk, the former Ecuadorian president took aim at the hegemonic media, pointing out that today there can be no lawfare without them.
Correa described the hegemonic press as manipulative and “watchdogs of the elites” and emphasized that for there to be democracy there must be information and free elections.
In this sense, he pointed out that former President Mauricio Macri -responsible for borrowing more than 44 billion dollars from the IMF-, enjoyed this debt instead of reactivating the country. Something similar happened in Ecuador, on the one hand the debt money came in, on the other hand it went out due to capital flight, he said.
