The National Anti-drug Secretariat (Senad) of Paraguay issued this Thursday a letter to the Foreign Ministry of the Plurinational State of Bolivia in which the declaration is rectified regarding the fact that the 10 tons of drugs seized in Germany come from Bolivian territory.

In the letter, Zully Rolón, Minister of the Senad, clarified that her answer came as a result of the question from a journalist, who asked “if the drug came from Bolivia”to which Rolón cites having responded: “we are in an incipient stage of investigation, with the probability (of) that the drug came from the neighboring country.”

He argued that the answer It is due to the geographical position in which both countries are located and because they are considered cocaine transit. In this sense, he stated that, currently, they are in constant communication with the Bolivian intelligence units, working to avoid said situation of passage.

It was never intended to aggravate the Bolivian people or Bolivian governmentneither from me nor from the institution, and I hope that we continue working together as we do now, against criminal schemes for the good of our countries and the region,” said Rolón.

The day before, the Bolivian Foreign Ministry, through diplomatic channels, sent a letter of protest to the Paraguayan authorities for the statement issued by the Senad minister qualifying such words as political and demanding seriousness.

“It corresponds do not politicize by the mediaThere are precisely diplomatic channels through which we will make our protest known, cannot be directly identified (to Bolivia) and that politically affects the sovereignty of a State, and in that context we will work,” said the vice chancellor, Freddy Mamani, when asked about this fact.

The case dates back to May 14, when the German authorities reported an operation carried out in the port of Hamburg, where 10 tons of purified cocaine from Paraguay were seized. In that country, Minister Zully Rolón said that the drug came from Bolivia, which unleashed the anger of the national authorities.
