In response to Bauta Rojas, Raful said that when she was a deputy for the political opposition, she exercised an oversight role in a Congress where no one audited anything. orque “when we criticized a loan it was because we studied that loan and we determined that there were inconsistencies in its components and we demonstrated it, “he said when taking a turn in the session that took place this Tuesday.
The legislator stressed that at that time they (the senators) “did not stand on the platform to say that with that loan they wanted us indebt, no, we studied it and showed what we found and there the government that handled everything was scared because someone was studying ”.
