His crusade began last Thursday when the former official arrived at the Assembly with a necklace around his neck hanging a sticker with the symbol of rejection of Bitcoin. This peculiar way of protesting against the virtual currency was noticed by the pro-government deputies, but did not comment, since the New Ideas parliamentarians were waiting for him eager to question him about the funds granted to an NGO, of which they assure, he was a member and that it received funds from the State.
“It is an initiative that arises as a result of my appearance in the Legislative Assembly and the concern that arises around that telenovela that the Assembly carries with the NGOs, is an accessory issue with respect to the real problems that the legislature should be discussing”, Girls told El Diario de Hoy.
