Bonfatti to Garré: 'Drugs enter from the frontier'
Santa Fe province Governor Antonio Bonfatti responded to the statements given by Security Minister Nilda Garré over the drug-trafficking issue, and reminded the official that "drugs enter from the frontier."
Bonfatti blasted Garré a few hours after she had renewed the criticism against Santa Fe over "the drug-trafficking gangs actions" at the province, after stating that the province is "a freed zone."
Bonfatti showed his discontent after the official's statements and said: "This bothers because we've permanently shown our concern and will to work together and stop putting the blame in others."
"Drug is not produced in Santa Fe, it comes from another place. We have to control the borders, the ships," he continued.
Besides, the Governor highlighted that "if anybody wants to take a political advantage, he's wrong. Because we condemn people. The drug enters from the frontier, we have to face that by working together."
Yesterday, the Security Minister said that there is an "influence" of the ex Police chief Hugo Tognoli in the provincial security forces and "his links to the drug-trafficking."
