Villegas wrote on Twitter, 'The deputy speaks about something he doesn't know and clearly does not understand. His thing is to take pictures of himself on the border with the Rastrojos (paramilitary group) and jumping over fences.'

Among the journalists attacked and threatened is Madelein Garcia, teleSUR correspondent, whose case was presented last week before the Communication and Information Commission of the National Constituent Assembly.

Tania Diaz, who chairs the Commission, noted it would follow reports of attacks against journalists by right-wing deputies.
