President of El Salvador accuses OAS Secretary-General Luis Almacro of promoting punishment In a country that has appointed an adviser to former mayor Ernesto Mushond, who faces two criminal charges. “The Secretary-General is punishing or trying to convict the perpetrator of Salvador.

I introduced myself and showed my face. Today I am a political prisonerHe posted on his Twitter account. The politician said he had Attorney General Rodolfo Delgado in charge and “Salvador’s leader Naib Buchale” in charge of “any attempt against my life”.
