In addition, he explained that the opposition parties have "tried to take political advantage of this process of criminalization of public life."
The councilor she added that "it was clear that he would not allow any individual or political party insinuated something other than reality for political advantage" and commented that "always carefully followed the administrative procedures dictated us the opinion of Legal and Advisory Board of the Region and the Criminal Division of the Supreme Court, and it has been demonstrated ".
