Uruguayan President and vice-president deny surveillance after viral audio where VP said: "everything is recorded"

Last week, a conversation between the Uruguayan vice president and the public relationships person Fernando Cristino was publicized.

In that record, the vice president said that "everything is known, everything is recorded".

He further mentions they have "a team" of lawyers dedicated to "process every kind of extorsions or requests they receive the whole time", so he (Fernando) should not mention "the Luis' dealer" because phones are wiretapped.

President Luis Lacalle Pou has now publically denied the accusations.
