Bolivia rules out the existence of irregular groups in Santa Cruz after the incident with journalists and police

MADRID, 25 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Bolivian Government Minister, Eduardo del Castillo, denied this Thursday the existence of irregular groups in the Guarayos province, located in the Santa Cruz department, after the incident suffered by journalists and police officers, who were detained by a armed group at the end of October.

“They are not irregular groups, they are individuals of an individual nature who have committed crimes,” Del Castillo said at a press conference, where he insisted that the Justice “corroborate” this circumstance as the investigations progress.

According to the Bolivian minister, the authorities are investigating “the other side of the coin,” the alleged existence of “tiny” groups of people “sent by businessmen,” according to ‘Página Siete’. In this regard, he reiterated that the Government “does not tolerate violence” in Bolivia.

The Bolivian Police announced on Wednesday the arrest of a man allegedly linked to the event, which took place in the context of a dispute over land. The journalists, policemen and others were held for at least seven hours in a place called Las Londras. One of the journalists said that they were surprised by hooded and armed people who fired several shots.

Del Castillo has already announced that the Bolivian Executive plans to take legal action against the armed group and guaranteed that “all the tools” available against them will be used.
