For the first time in two years, President Gabriel Boric has toughened his tone against those who have sent threats against him or her in writing or through digital platforms. addressed to his family. “These groups that are doing it more and more often with my family are crossing every line. Not everything works,” warned the president, who attributed the messages to right-wing extremist groups.
His words came after unknown people this morning threw pamphlets on legal format sheets of paper with various offensive messages and in a threatening tone in front of the fence of his parents’ home in Punta Arenas.
“Borian communist outside the country”; “Shitty communist Boric”; “Communists out of the country” were a few sentences, accompanied by a drawing of a hanged man with childish lines, that were thrown on the sidewalk in about 18 leaflets.
Sources close to the presidential escort indicate that there have been about 15 threats against the president in the last two years, almost all of them politically motivated and of low plausibility, but a clear profile of the perpetrators of the intimidation attempts cannot be given. against Boric.
Among the most striking records is that of a subject with a criminal record who wrote to him on a government platform in 2021, intimidatingly assuring in his letter: “If they pass the law (on parental responsibility and effective payment) (of child debts food pensions) would burn the entire country, starting with the house of Boric and his relatives.”
In the threatening text, the person arrested by BICRIM pointed out that “there are mothers who are like the P… and they don’t let us see their children, that’s why we don’t give them pensions.”
There is also another one, registered on February 8, 2023, in the well-known “Boric Tree”. Unknown people tried to burn him with accelerant, they left written slogans and a suspect was arrested in Magallanes.
So far, however, the president has lowered the profile of offensive messages or messages with a threatening tone.
