Last weekend, passers-by and tourists who were in the Historic Center of Cartagena were spectators of the scandalous scene where a totally naked couple looks out onto a balcony that overlooks the street and, as if nothing, they begin to have intimacy.

We call on citizens and tourism providers so that together we set the rules of behavior in the destination”, explained Natalia Bohórquez Castilla, executive president of the Cartagena de Indias Tourism Corporation.
As a result of the controversy that has been generated on the subject, the woman involved in the scandal gave her testimony to the local newspaper The universaland spoke about what happened that night and about his opinion of the ‘exhibits of love’ in public.
The woman, identified as Emily Barros, 22, in the middle of the interview with the newspaper He explained that he just wanted to fulfill a sexual fantasy with the American citizen.
“Suddenly we were euphoric and like so many people who have that fantasy of having a sexual act in front of people, we had sex on the balcony of the house we rented to spend our vacations”, said Emily Barros.

“They took advantage of the situation, my friend had to collect the money with the rest of his colleagues. They took approximately 3 thousand dollars. The next day, other police officers arrived and since my friend had already gone to the airport, they went there to question him, but finally he was able to travel,” added Barros.
However, Colonel Óscar Pachón, operational commander of the Citizen Security of the Cartagena Metropolitan Police, announced that “Two subpoena orders were made applying the National Code of Coexistence and Citizen Security in article 33, 2 B, which are the behaviors that affect tranquility by performing acts of exhibitionism that generate annoyance to the community”.

On the other hand, Emily argued that a fact like this should not be given so much importance. “How are they going to engage in something as basic as a couple giving each other love?, living her love, Giving love is not a crime. Love does not steal, love does not kill, love does not hurt, love is something we all do every day. I don’t understand why they get involved in these things when there are worse things in the country, there are big crimes and the Police are simply looking for where to take advantage of,” said the young woman from Santa Marta.
This fact caused outrage in all citizens, for this reason, the Council of Cartagena asked the District Administration to take measures similar to those that have been applied in other cities of the country, where the expulsion of those who carry out this type has been requested. of acts.
