Fr. Omar Sánchez Portillo, secretary general of Cáritas Lurín, stated Monday that he has been the victim of death threats, several cyberattacks on his social media, and the theft of a debit card.
“They sent me a bullet again. It’s the third one since Monday, May 24. It’s the first time that I have posted on this subject,” Fr. Sánchez wrote Aug. 23 on his Facebook page.
“What person or persons are the authors? I have no idea. I only pray to God for them and their souls, for peace in their hearts. I have always considered that I have no enemies and I still think that I don’t have them. Afraid? No. Do they want to silence me? Never. Will I keep talking? Always. #TerrorismoNuncaMas,” he said.
Speaking Aug. 23 to ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish language news partner, Fr. Sánchez said that the letters came with just the bullets inside and with his name written on the outside of the envelope. He said that the last envelope was found the night of Aug. 22 in an area where there are no security cameras.
