Fortunato Quesada Seminario, current Peruvian ambassador in Israel, is being accused by the embassy workers of mistreatment and constant humiliation.
La República informed yesterday evening that the Peruvian employees that work in the embassy complained about the treatment they had been receiving by Quesada. “Audios recorded in the Tel Aviv residence expose what has been lived in distant lands”, said this media.
The chef of the embassy, Jesús Alvarado, was one of the workers that decided to denounce these facts. In turn, Romina Teves, another employee of the residence, also gave her testimony to Panorama, said La República.
The testimonies included audio recordings of someone who is allegedly Quesada. He was recorded for several days by Alvarado expressing himself in the worst way of his subordinates.
“Panorama indicated that Alvarado and Teves had to leave the residence before the broadcast of the report for fear of reprisals, which could be given to reveal the alleged abuses to which they were subjected”, wrote La República.
Quesada defended himself saying that he didn’t know that there were complaints about him and that he is only expressing himself using colloquial phrases. “In Israel there is gender equality”, he said.
