Prosecutor Hernández argues that Benedetti's statements to the media on September 21 attack his rights "to honor and good name, with the sole purpose of affecting my moral integrity and continuing to deceive the administration of justice."

“According to Benedeetti Villaneda, the investigations against him, in the Fiduprevisora ​​case, are based on acts carried out on my part and against witnesses, who, according to him, I pressured to testify against him — or in favor, of according to the version presented by him on September 21—. His intervention is so rude that it does not make clear what my intention or use in it would have been,” reads the complaint published by W Radio

Regarding the complaint against him that Benedetti filed and that the former ambassador brought up in his statements, prosecutor Hernández warns that it was filed on January 29, 2019 by the First Delegate Prosecutor's Office before the Supreme Court of Justice and that in this decision “Copies were certified before the Supreme Court of Justice so that the actions of Mr. Benedetti Villaneda could be investigated in relation to the false complaint that he filed against me and whose spurious content he reiterated in his speech on September 21 of this year. This fact demonstrates the interest of Mr. Benedetti Villaneda in generating lies and deceptions before society, foisting illegal acts on me, in order to attack me morally and continue deceiving the administration of justice."

The former ambassador, at the close of this note, has not commented on the complaint and his last publication on social networks about this is from September 22:

“Did Daniel Hernández's bandit already denounce me? I'm waiting for it. Let me know”
