Faced with what happened, the mayor Daniel Quintero also spoke and asked Migración Colombia to expel the tourist that, as he declared, “came to damage the image of Medellín and mistreat women.”
“We are asking that this foreigner be expelled from the country, because that person does not do good to the country or to Medellín. That is not the fame we want for the city. We put Lleras Park as a main focus of attention because we encountered difficulties such as prostitution, trafficking in women and child abuse, ”Quintero added in his speech.
Finally, the president recalled that the planned investments and the measures taken in recent months, such as the curfew for minors, are part of the recovery strategy for this tourist area of Medellín.
