The President of the Republic, Sebastin Piera, accepted the resignation of the General Director of Carabineros, Mario Rozas, from his position after an incident was revealed in a minors’ home in Talcahuano, where a police officer shot and injured minors old. This adds to an intense criticism of its management, largely due to reports of human rights violations during the outbreak.
I have the greatest appreciation, admiration and gratitude for the work that General Rozas has done. A whole life devoted to Carabineros, and consequently to all Chileans, assured the head of state and emphasized that Rozas held the office at a difficult time in the country.
In addition, the head of state appointed General Ricardo Yez as the new head of the uniformed police, who was entrusted with the task of pressing ahead with the modernization of the Carabineros de Chile with full commitment and will, which we all know that it is necessary.
General Ricardo Yez is after Bruno Villalobos, Hermes Soto and Mario Rozas the fourth highest Carabineros boss in three years. (Pamela Squella)
