Lima, Nov 8 (EFE) .- The Consumer Defense Commission of the Peruvian Congress refused to listen to the representative of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) in Peru, the Spanish Raúl González, during the debate on amendments to the Healthy Eating Law, confirmed the international official today.

"I must say that, in our experience, we had never past this, "González said on the radio station RPP Noticias.

Local media reported that the incident occurred on Tuesday, when the commission's president, Fujimorista Miguel Castro stopped the debate after learning of the presence of González and former congressman Jaime Delgado, who promoted the approval of the law in 2013.

Delgado told the newspaper La Republic that the decision to ask them to leave the room "was a very unpleasant incident" and considered it "a total grievance".

"I express my protest at such a shameful act to our country. session, but without listening to his opinion.

"They rejected the qualified opinion of WHO (...) is something unprecedented," he added before saying that he attended the session invited by the vice president of the working group, the parliamentarian María Elena Foronda, of the Frente Amplio de izquierda.

González said that after this experience, she considers that the legislative commission You must "change its name" because it has "the impression that there will be defending the consumer."

"Given what I've seen there, and what I heard with my ears, there are other interests, "he said before considering that" consumers and the health of Peruvians are not being defended. "

González added that during the debate he heard the presentation of a expert in neuromarketing, a specialty that raises techniques to "modify the will of the consumer", as he said.

"Only by listening to that the hairs stand on end," he added before to emphasize that WHO seeks to "give the population tools to protect their health".

González considered that the objective of this modification is that the Healthy Eating Law "is useless" and that the average consumer "can not make a decision Quick and clear when you go to buy a processed product. "
