Today several social groups will meet to present a complaint against Ecuador’s ambassador in Peru, Rodrigo Riofrio, over a fight he had with two Peruvians in a supermarket, which has caused negative reactions in social networks and on the diplomatic situation between the two countries.
Such is the case of the Movimiento Colectivo Alternativa Verde, which will present a complaint to the prosecution due to the aggressions from the ambassador. Its director, Flor de Maria Hurtado, said “this Monday at 10:00 we will be filing a complaint with the Public Prosecutor against the ambassador over injuries against two fellow countrywomen and other crimes, which are under analysis”.
Likewise, Hurtado revealed that her group and the Peruvian Foreign Ministry presented a request that the ambassador to be declared persona non grata.
On the other hand, the former vice chancellor of Ecuador, Marcelo Fernandez de Cordoba, on declarations with Ecuavisa, said the solution to the diplomatic conflict between Peru and Ecuador, lies in the hands of Ambassador Rodrigo Riofrio.
“He should be aware that returning to Peru would be very difficult for his diplomatic work,” said the former vice chancellor. The Peruvian government does not trust the work that our ambassador could do in Lima, “the retreat should be given through diplomacy and the only person who can do it, is the same ambassador Riofrio” he added.
