‘Peoples’ pressure’ ousted UN rep from the country: Deputy
Santo Domingo.- Gonzalo Vargas Llosa, whose criticism of the Dominican Republic on the issue of Haitians has sparked wide rebuke, will be removed as representative in the country of the Office UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
Conservative FNP party deputy Vinicio Castillo Seman tweeted the information on Wednesday.
"The UN withdraws Gonzalo Vargas Llosa RD in the heels of rejection by the Dominican people. Traitors prepare a farewell dinner today," the lawmaker said.
He said the measure results from pressure exerted by Congress’s and the National District City Council’s resolutions declaring "persona non grata," the nephew of Nobel writer Mario Vargas Lllosa -another personality disdained by Dominican Republic’s conservative sectors.
"The FNP played a key role in mobilizing the people’s rebuke against Vargas Llosa to enforce our sovereignty. Mission accomplished!," Castillo said in another tweet.
