«Skipping the tourniquet, in the context we’re in today, is a bad metaphor, because they’re telling children and teenagers to skip the rules,» the government spokesman minister replied.
The Minister of Government, Jaime Bellolio, addressed during this day the controversy generated by the campaign launched by the Ombudsman’s Office. On the song that included phrases such as «skipping all tourniquets,» the secretary of state assured that it is «a bad metaphor.» «If the goal of that campaign was to mark those rights (of children and adolescents), what was achieved is just the opposite, because rather it looked like a video that encouraged actions that are outside the legal framework or a division,» he replied. In doing so, she said that «skipping the tourniquet, in the context we are in today is a bad metaphor, because they are telling children and adolescents that the rules must be bypassed, that is not an appropriate measure for the Child Advocate to do.» Bellolio was also consulted on chile’s request to remove children’s advocate Patricia Muñoz. In this sense, he argued that «that is something that corresponds to them».
