The regional governor of Arica and Parinacota, Jorge Díaz, affirmed that it is imprudent to ensure that the Tren de Aragua criminal gang is dismantled, as stated by the regional prosecutor, Mario Carrera, who expressed that there was an “overreaction” to the complaints of threats that would have received carabineros.

Díaz met this Monday in La Moneda with the Undersecretary of the Interior, Manuel Monsalve, to analyze the security situation in the north, prior to the trip that the authority of the Ministry of the Interior will make this Wednesday.

At the end of the meeting, the governor affirmed that one of the agreements with the government is the creation of the Regional Consultative Council against Organized Crime, to implement clear measures and strategies to confront this type of organized gangs and to understand that “the criminological type has changed and a normative update is required to face this new criminal type”.

He added that “any strategy that implies curbing organized crime is very valid, but it must also have territorial connotations.”

The governor added that until now, the decree that allows border control by the Armed Forces. It has been enough, so a State of Exception would not be necessary, but it must also be understood that the entry of migrants brings with it the arrival of criminals, linked to international gangs, because the registry of foreigners must be reinforced.

Faced with the threats that police officers would have received in the sector of Cerro Chuño, Díaz affirmed that “it is not only necessary to focus on this type of threat, what we do see is that the trade of Arica and Parinacota is being threatened and extorted and unfortunately the crime of threat is not a crime that has an aggravating circumstance, therefore it is taken as a common threat. The truth is that in the region, merchants are holding demonstrations because they are tired of receiving calls related to extortion and from there they have demanded that all threats be specifically addressed and for now, one of the measures that they have taken is to reduce opening hours, closing their establishments earlier than normal”.

Regarding the dismantling of the Aragua Train, as assured by prosecutor Carrera, the authority stated that “I don’t know who can assert that. There will have to be such an intelligence to know and have a specific registry of each of the people who entered through the irregular steps to know that. The truth is that this type of criminal gang, it does not matter where the location of its members is, they continue to be active members of the same and that is what worries because regardless of whether they are inside a prison or not, beyond whether they are outside the region or within the country or outside of Chile, they continue to be active members of criminal action because that is the way they operate. Therefore, indicating in a very precise and emphatic manner that this type of criminal gang is dismantled, seems to me to be somewhat imprudent.”
