I have been cowardly assaulted outside the Don Bosco church by Raúl St. Malo, father of the 5-year prisoner for money laundering. It seems that he wants us to applaud his son's actions, ”said Cochez, who had to go to the hospital after the confrontation reports El Siglo.

"Those who believe in physically assaulting me like De Saint Malo did it at the exit of the Don Bosco church, in Via Israel they are wrong. These cowardly actions give me the strength to denounce all cases of impunity that like that of his son Raul Saint  Malo  Garcia is in Panama, "added the former ambassador.

De Saint Malo Sr. responded that he only spoke to  Cochez and he attacked me. "I defended myself and he fell," he said.
