Well dear Readers,
As it was expected and as usually as it happens in the incredible magic but real tales of Macondo, finally Ingrid Betancourt decided to droped her
suit against the Columbian State, but not before to have suffered one of the worst discredit campaigns against a public figure ever have experienced
due to a very polemic decission once taken.
I am wondering what are the credentials of the Lawyer that assisted her in such a project of legal action?
However, it is important to clarify that Yolanda Pulecio, Mother of Ingrid Betancourt, and also a former congress woman of Columbia, publically have
disclosed to the media that the legal action was not properly a suit against the Columbian State, but a conciliatory demand and that there is a kind
of plot promoted by the goverment to distroy the image of her daughter with all this scandal.
Pls read :
( Pls use the yahoo website translator since the page is only posted in spanish)
and now the personal Lawyer of Mrs Betancourt also says more or less the same to the media trying to refrain the strength of the world scandal:
Perhaps Ingrid Betancourt needed a better legal assesment before to procede in this legal action, and as well perhaps she also required it when she
decided to follow her political instincts to go to the jungle about 7 years ago.
The point is that either the way in which this event has been showing by the Media or the poor advising of the Lawyer Gabriel Devies is now costing to
a former Presidential Candidate and Senator of Columbia practically all her reputation, possibly the only thing she could rescue of her career after
all the years that was kidnapped.
One of the worst consequences of this huge mistake in her political career is that now there is a crusade in Columbia to boicott the promotion of the
book Mrs Betancourt is publishing of her memories of the long and painful experience abducted in hands of the FARC terrorists.
The sad consequences of this scandal are not only affecting the life of Ingrid Betancourt but even the one of her mother the also Senator Yolanda
Pulecio, former Miss Columbia,
Yolanda Pulecio a very well known philantropist that have worked almost all her public life in favor of the orfanates and the abandoned children in
Bogota, in a country in which traditionally there has been not to many public or private organizations doing something really effective for them.
So , are we now dealing with the memory of one of the most famous abductions of the History, followed by a suit that appearantly looked as incredibly
opportunistic or moreover witnessing one of the most incredible plots to destroy the image of a figure that is only trying to rebuild her life after a
huge tragic event?
Although we are talking of course of a country with free press, I am wondering if the battle among the government and the Betancourt family in the
media of the Southamerican country is not damaging even more the international image of Columbia than the abduction this lady suffered along so many
It is quite polemic why she was kidnapped, possibly after all at the end nobody can be blamed of that besides the bandits of the FARC, but how about
all the time she spent in captivity without any effective action of the authorities, a person that was many times starving, psicologically tortured
and even it looks sexually abused by her captors? I think this is a human being that it is logically emotionally destroyed and is trying to continue
her life, to return from the hell to a new begining.
Thanks for your attention,
