Today the Minister made his first public statement on the matter, revealing that the threat was of a personal nature, but reiterating that he is not afraid.

According to the Minister, the threatening call was received by a family member alleging that he and Mayor Guerrero knew of certain persons under detention and accusing him of failing to lift a finger to help “get them out.” The female caller went on to threaten that Heredia “should not be surprised” if he “is no longer alive” by the next day. Heredia says police are investigating and he intends to continue to live his life, opining that on the day God is ready for him, no matter what he does, he will leave.
