“It is very worrying because once again the current government has failed to fulfill its campaign promises to return the army to its barracks, to leave the National Guard and the functions of that national police in civilian hands, which should be in charge of fighting crime. organized as a responsibility of internal and public security, which is precisely its constitutional and legal competence, “he said.
