Federal Judge Juan Torruella: The Financial Control Board could lead to “civil disobedience and violence in Puerto Rico”


“According to Judge Torruella, the Control Board is further evidence of the colonial status of Puerto Rico, which is the cause of Puerto Rico’s economic crisis.”
… Thank you, Judge … If the “Board” is imposed, I sure hope it leads to “civil disobedience and violence”!!

WAR AGAINST ALL PUERTO RICANS

Book - 12-10

Judge Juan R. Torruella Del Valle, the longest-standing federal judge in Puerto Rican history, has warned that the Financial Control Board being planned in the US Congress could lead to civil disobedience and violence in Puerto Rico. 

According to Judge Torruella, the Control Board is further evidence of the colonial status of Puerto Rico, which is the cause of Puerto Rico’s economic crisis. “This Board could lead to unintended consequences and violence in Puerto Rico,” said Torruella.

“There is a double standard for Puerto Rico,” said Torruella on April 12, at a conference in the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. “The US preaches democracy to the outside world, and then maintains a colony in Puerto Rico.”

Judge Torruella’s firm posture is not new. Two years ago, he called for a general boycott of US chain stores in Puerto Rico, by the consumers who live on the island.
