Lilian Tintori, activist, and wife of the imprisoned Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, denounced this morning that the immigration department of the Guayaquil airport did not let her enter Ecuador.
“We have been just denied access to enter the country, they do not let us in, they took our passport, told us that we must take the next flight and they do not let us enter Ecuador,” Tintori said in a video posted on her Twitter account. She added that they were told they had to leave on the next flight.
She pointed out that the government of Rafael Correa prevents her from entering the country. The activist had arrived in the country early this morning invited by the CREO party to carry out some activities in Guayaquil and Quito.
The presidential hopeful and leader of the CREO party, Guillermo Lasso, rejected what happened with activist Lilian Tintori.
Tintori’s flight arrived this morning. She made the announcement on her social networks. Outside the International arrivals area several followers were waiting for her.
She then wrote that he was prevented from entering. After being unable to get into the city, she took a flight bound for Miami, United States. Before leaving, she published another video in which she says she was held at the Guayaquil airport for five hours, and that President Correa “is doing the same thing that Nicolas Maduro is doing, violating the human rights of citizens.”
