Interior Minister, Jose Serrano, and the commanding general of police, Rodrigo Suarez, went yesterday to the Prosecutor’s Office to deliver a complaint against the former head of Army Intelligence, Mario Pazmino, for the crime of defamation.
The complaint comes after that last May 10 at Radio Vision, Pazmino ensured “… that these (drug) structures in order to work properly, they had to maintain protective circles which are local criminal gangs, buy authorities who are handling areas, buying judges, buying government officials. Here the corruption has reached such immense levels that even authorities of Armed Forces, National Police, and court officials are linked. “
According to Serrano, Pazmino must provide evidence of his claims, as he believes that the whole thing is an attack against state security. “This was an attack on the honor of the officers, the command, the Police and the Institutionalism itself … the Government and all political levels of government institutions, “said Serrano.
