After lawyer Abelardo de la Espriella even celebrated with rum that the Constitutional Court ordered journalist Daniel Mendoza rectify their accusations against Álvaro Uribe, for his allegations in the Matarife series, the creator of the production referred to in what he called an “official statement” and hinted that he will not abide by the ruling of the high court.
In Twitter, where he calls himself 'The one who gives them away', Mendoza went lance at the ready against the lawyer of Espriella, who was the one who represented the leader of the Democratic Center in that legal battle to, supposedly, clear the name of the ex-president. In his video, which he recorded from a hospital, the journalist described the well-known and controversial litigant as a “clown” .
“Today, the eve of After my surgery, I see how Abelardo de la Espriella comes out painted as a clown to toast because he protected the name of Álvaro Uribe Vélez when the ruling (of the Court) could not have left him more helpless”, < /b>expressed the 'brain' behind the docuseries in which he portrays the former president as a genocide.

Mendoza also described the Court's decision as “spanking”and he assured that he does not have the financial resources to air his positions and for this reason he asked his more than 526 thousand followers on that social network to spread the statement.
In the first instance, the also lawyer lashed out at Uribe again and called him a “paraco narco murderer” and recalled that, supposedly, the Court allowed him to continue with the Matarie series published in Youtube. “He expressly said that the series could be broadcast on any kind of platform”, he added.
In addition, Mendoza assured that the Court allowed him to make serious accusations against the ex-president as a rapist, drug trafficker and paramilitary. However, in the ruling that was made public a few days ago, it was made clear that the court ordered him to rectify multiple of those accusations against Uribe.
“Nobody can be denied the right to think of Álvaro Uribe otherwise. The decision that gives me “spanking scolding” in its recitals ends up responding that the series, as a whole, informs and gives an opinion on what it is,” said Mendoza.

In this line, he announced that after he submits to a heart surgery that is pending will define whether to rectify the accusations against the former senator of the Democratic Center. “A chimba clarification that, when I recover from my open-heart surgery, I will evaluate whether or not to give it”,added the journalist, who said that he is considering taking the case before international bodiess so that his right to freedom of expression is respected.
Likewise, he assured that in the 6 hours that the series lasts, only in 47 seconds he makes accusations against former President Uribe and that what he stated there was “an opinion” and not a piece of information. He further said that he has endless proofsto support the accusations against the leader who governed Colombia between 2002 and 2010.
“What is being asked of me is so irrelevant that I think I am going to clarify what for me already It's clear,” stated Mendoza.

He even asked President Gustavo Petro, and his faithful friend, senator Gustavo Bolívar -of the Historical Pact-, to help him disseminate what he considers “his truth” about the true claims of the Constitutional Court after ruling against him and giving, in some way, a support to Álvaro Uribe, in two instances.
