One day after the wedding of Luis Fernando Camacho with the queen of Carnival 2019, Fátima Jordán, the Minister of Government, Eduardo Del Castillo, affirms that the governor of Santa Cruz went on his honeymoon and that has neglected the issue of security in the region.
“Unfortunately, we see how the Government is not interested in investing in citizen security. Mr. Camacho went on his honeymoon when there is a wave of robberies in the department of Santa Cruz,” Del Catillo said when he was reached by a group of journalists at the exit of a press conference in Santa Cruz this Sunday referring to different police operations.
The authority assured that it has not seen, in a year of the governor’s administration, that he works on the issue of security prevention. “We see, day by day, how resources are sleeping on your desk and how the Bolivian Police have needs to continue working”, he added.
Del Castillo indicated that it is necessary to reinvest the resources of the Government in terms of citizen security and referred to Law 264 which establishes that 10% of the resources from the Direct Tax on Hydrocarbons must be invested in security.
“We have never seen in this administration that a single peso is invested to protect women in the department of Santa Cruz. They have obligations to women victims of violence and we only see the Bolivian Police at work.”
“We are going to continue working to continue reducing the figures of violence in our country, crimes against life and property crimes; we have achieved it, but I am sure that, if other authorities get their act together, we will have better results. The people of Santa Cruz are tired of this man stopping on a trip, on his honeymoon and not carrying out his duties,” concluded.
