In talks with Fundamedios, Hidalgo said she was threatened with death in two phone calls. The first to her cell phone and the second to her home number. In them, a man’s voice warned her: “I’m going to drag you whore from the right,” and that she and her family would be found in black bags.
The next day she was threatened again through a telephone call made to her home number and through social networks messages. Hidalgo rejected this type of political violence and assured that she will file a complaint when the spirits calm down.
