A grievance of assault filed by a trans lady in opposition to Yamand Orsifavourite to turn out to be the presidential candidate of the left-wing opposition Wide Frontshook up the electoral marketing campaign this week in Uruguay.

Orsi, 56 years outdated and inheritor to the legacy of the previous president and former guerrilla Jose Mujicadenies the intercourse employee's accusations Paula Dazwho claimed that he hit her after refusing to pay for oral intercourse in June 2014. Justice has not but begun to research Díaz's legal grievance, filed early Wednesday morning.

When giving her model to the press, this 42-year-old transsexual lady mentioned she remembered the incident “a matter of a month ago” when she noticed Orsi “on TV.”

The president of the Broad Front, Fernando Pereira, mentioned that all the pieces is “part of an orchestrated campaign” to “publicly ban one of the party's candidates with the greatest voting intention.” And he questioned whether or not Daz knew Orsi, who was mayor of the division of cannelloni from 2015 till final March 1.

Díaz indicated that she was inspired to report him after “an acquaintance” put her in touch with Romina Celeste Papassothe trans lady who final 12 months accused the official senator of being a “pedophile” Gustavo Penads, whose parliamentary privileges had been withdrawn and was charged with preventive detention for alleged sexual abuse of minors. But not like Papasso, who’s a member of the ruling National Party, Díaz mentioned he was “outside of politics.”

“I'm not even interested in showbiz or popularity. The last thing I want is that, or taking money from someone. I want justice to be done. I paid $1,500 for my nose, and this guy head-butted me and “I ruined it,” he emphasized.

In a video broadcast on social networks on March 7, Papasso had announced that a trans girl told him that she had been attacked by Orsi.

Orsi called Papasso's statements “nonsense” and warned that “it’s one thing that’s not in opposition to an individual, it’s in opposition to democracy.” “This individual is confused, in fact it wasn't me. Or worse, it will be even sadder if somebody was utilizing her,” she said at a press conference.

Orsi said that actions like these are “very effectively orchestrated” by a “worldwide mafia” with a lot of money. Those close to the candidate mention drug trafficking.

The electoral process in Uruguay will begin on June 30 with the party primaries. The presidential and legislative elections will be on October 27, with an eventual runoff on November 24.
