“They speak of a crime at close range but avoid the crux of the matter that this Wednesday our Peñi will be sentenced to dozens of years in prison,” they complained in the letter, pointing out that “those who face our actions trying to present themselves as victims are the same ones who justified territorial expropriation with the creation of a false truth, believing themselves to be the owners of a story that does not belong to them. “
