On her Facebook, Chinchilla asserted that “Comandante Cero” (Commander Zero), as she was called in life, “was a mercenary who betrayed the coat we gave him.”

For Chinchilla, it is not acceptable that “they dedicate informative articles as they have never done with exemplary compatriots who have left us.”

The ex-guerrilla, who in 2010 became a thorn in the new administration of Chinchilla as the military officer “following orders” in charge of Nicaragua to dredge the San Juan River, which led to the conflict over Isla Calero.
