The counselor of Lenin Moreno, Santiago Cuesta, considered that in the social networks it is sought to affect officials of the Regime and he pointed out Rafael Correa for a supposed “massive attack with ‘trolls’ to tear the Government apart”.
The statements were made on Wednesday, October 24, 2018, during an interview on Radio Democracia. Jurado, who defines himself as a personal adviser to the President, attributed the trolls – considered to be the people who post messages on social networks and Internet under anonymity – to those who have affected officials on virtual platforms.
According to the Counselor, there are in favor of Correa, “23,000 accounts, with which he attacks every day and creates opinion, creates mirages.” “We hired a company that just told us how many ‘trolls’ he has (…) We do not know the names, but the head of the ‘trolls’ yes, there is a gentleman named Roberto, another Mr. Navas I just checked them in the tax area and they do not even pay taxes, “Cuesta said
The presidential adviser said that with those accounts” Correa has tried to destroy the government as it has, he has left a perfectly established time bomb to burst during the Government of President Moreno.
“Cuesta referred to the cases that have affected different ministers and government secretaries.” He started with Juan Sebastián Roldán, then he got me with some videos that I was earning USD 20 million with the methanol Listen to me Ecuadorians, one gram of methanol has never been imported, “he said in the interview.
“Then came the Secretary General” (Eduardo Jurado) and spoke of the case of improper charges in bank accounts, arising from the comments of a journalist. “He went out to do a full media show (…) when the ex-government of Correa allowed the bank to make that kind of negotiation,” he said. “With Eduardo Jurado they tried to destabilize us, they did not succeed, they tried it with Andrés Michelena, they will not achieve it and then Paúl Granda, which is the worst thing that could happen and we are going to take action on the matter,” he said.
According to Cuesta, the General Secretary of the Politics and Minister of Justice in charge, Paúl Granda, was “betrayed by the same correístas who remain entrenched in the Government”.
The Counselor pointed out that those people would have caused the escape of the ex-secretary of Communication Fernando Alvarado, who took off the electronic shackle on Saturday, October 20.
“What they did to the State, is not possible, that a shackle was not altered, the keys were given by the Ministry of Justice, which was connected to people linked to Correa,” Cuesta says. “There is a conspiracy in the country (…) in the correísta style and they continue to maintain it”, said the counselor of Lenín Moreno.
