The Voice of America, a well-known official communication medium of the United States Government, has called the most dangerous leaders in El Salvador who were recently transferred to the Center for the Confinement of Terrorism (CECOT) “suspected gang members.”
According to the Voice of America, the inmates transferred to the CECOT prison are ‘suspected’ members of the gangs, however, these individuals have been linked to various crimes such as homicides, extortion and drug trafficking.
In response to this, the President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele, reacted by condemning the media’s statements: The official media outlet of the United States Government says that these murderers, judicially convicted of murdering thousands of Salvadorans, are “suspected gang members.” Why do they publicly defend gang members? What is your interest in protecting criminals?
The penitentiary center has the capacity to hold 40,000 inmates, making it the largest in the American continent.
