“Learn to do politics with arguments … not with opportunistic distortions,” Uribe said to Pardo in one of the nine “tweets” dedicated to bashing the liberal leader over the Victims Law.
In an interview with newspaper El Tiempo, Pardo commented on Uribe’s opposition of the Victims Law because of its fiscal cost, saying that it is “paradoxical that those who were blindfolded and did not question the value the Justice and Peace Law for its perpetrators now worry about the cost of its victims.”
Uribe responded: “Be sincere, not distorted: our government introduced the administrative reparation of the victims.”
He also commented that “the best reparation is the right not to repeat the violence: Democratic Security.”
Pardo ultimately countered, “I do not reply to tweets, politics are ideas and ideas should not be limited to 140 characters. If someone wants a debate with ideas, I’m ready.”
