On the eve of the Young Combatant’s Day, the UDI deputies Juan Antonio Coloma and Christian Moreira they asked the government of the President Gabriel Boric support the work of Carabineros.
The parliamentarians pointed out that the Executive “has the obligation to support, both from a political and legal point of view, the work that hundreds of uniformed personnel carry out in the streets of the capital and different urban centers of the country, especially on a date that causes alterations to public order and that frightens Chilean families.”
Both UDI deputies pointed out that the signals given by the Boric administration have been “quite negative”, highlighting the withdrawal of 139 complaints under the State Security Law, “they did not deny the parole of a person accused of throwing Molotov cocktails at a police car and did not want to sue for the attack on the minister Izkia Siches”, they added.
“They have preferred to go visit demonstrators, instead of Police wounded by the heartless attack of these mobs, in addition to demanding summaries against their officials and announcing possible lawsuits,” they blurted out.
Lastly, they regretted that the Segpres minister, George Jacksonhas spoken “of a rivalry between the Carabineros and the demonstrators, putting the country’s police and the violent activists who destroy the city and burn business premises on the same level.”
Let us remember that the Day of the Young Combatant is commemorated on March 29. This, because on that date, but from 1985, the brothers Rafael and Eduardo Vergara Toledo were assassinated by Carabineros agents, in the midst of the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.
