When detailing what is lived in the area, the undersecretary indicated in emmol that “in the case of La Araucanía, it occurs in the context of the conflict that is taking place in the southern macro zone, there are acts of violence that have determined that the Government takes a quite severe decision, which is to decree a state of emergency. One of the effects of the State of Exception has to do with the decrease in acts of violence with firearms and it is precisely in this type of violence that the State of Exception has a more marked effect, close to a 50% decrease”.
“Therefore, we reject violence, we do not accept it, we persecute it and we file complaints regarding acts of violence of this gravity and we hope that the persecution to identify, arrest and prosecute those behind criminal organizations that commit such serious crimes will be successful. “, he added.
He also specified that they are working with the Public Ministry to find the whereabouts of those responsible for the attack against the police officers.
At the press point, the authority was also consulted about criminal organizations and their possible entry into our country from abroad. “I would invite the entire country not to create myths behind criminal organizations, first because as you can see, organizations that are considered extraordinarily complex, dangerous and very well organized in the case of Chile, their leaders are in jail, that is what is concrete,” Monsalve responded.
In this line, he referred to what was done with Los Gallegos. “In the case of Los Gallegos in Arica there are 29 organizations in jail and in the case of the Tren de Aragua and its main leader known as La Estrella, they are also in jail, I ask not to build myths, because finally those who carry out the investigation regarding criminal organizations is done through the Public Ministry and the police”.
“Who can finally say if a criminal organization is actually linked to another such as the Aragua Train or the Gulf cartel, who have the evidence to determine if that link exists,” he added.
Finally, Monsalve pointed out that “all the rest of the affirmations that we make about a criminal organization or the objective that we add to it is an assumption that only helps to build myths, therefore, what matters here is the evidence and the evidence is built by the Public Ministry and the police.
