"Latin America was not prepared for a phenomenon of this magnitude," Ernesto Samper said, adding that "after COVID-19, it will never be the same again."

The recent conviction against Ecuador's former President Rafael Correa will be rejected by the 14 members who will participate in the virtual debate.
