In the midst of the repudiation and questioning of a large part of the opposition arch to the possible visit to the country of Venezuelan President

Nicolás Maduro

to participate in CELAC, the president of the PRO,

Patricia Bullrich

, demanded that Justice

stop him if he "comes to Argentina"

for "having committed crimes against humanity".

"If Nicolás Maduro comes to Argentina, he must be arrested immediately for having committed crimes against humanity," Bullrich posted on Twitter.

And he specified: "Just as it happened with Pinochet in London, in 1998. Justice must act to protect the universal validity of human rights."

Bullrich had already ruled on the possible visit of Maduro as soon as the Venezuelan leader's intention to attend CELAC was known.

"We want an Argentina free of dictators! Let's all say NO to the "visit" of autocratic presidents. Our country is NOT an aguantadero," he wrote on Tuesday on the same social network.

The repudiation of the Civic Coalition

The party that has Elisa Carrió as its maxim spoke out against the presence of Maduro and

also the Cuban Miguel Díaz Canel and the president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega


In the text they warn of their "deep concern about the

presence of dictators at the summit

of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) to be held in the City of Buenos Aires on January 24."

"The path of the rule of law is the only possible one to achieve a prosperous and peaceful region. We cannot with our silence endorse regimes that do not respect the popular will, the rights of minorities, nor allow political plurality and diversity and freedom in matters of gender, as well as the division of powers, the existence of independent justice and that tacitly support violations of the territorial integrity of states," the statement said.

They also claim that "the attacks on democratic institutions by extremist sectors, authoritarianism, attacks on the free press and the persecution of opponents must be repudiated by all democratic governments in the region."

And it adds: "We repudiate the presence of Presidents Nicolás Maduro (Venezuela), Miguel Díaz Canel (Cuba) and Daniel Ortega (Nicaragua) and/or representatives of those dictatorial regimes."
