Maduro launches Safe Homeland security plan
Nicolás Maduro admitted that the most important issue the Venezuelan society has to solve is high crime rates
From the Honor Courtyard of the Bolivarian Army Military University, Maduro admitted that the most important issue the Venezuelan society has to solve is high crime rates. He said that crime is also hitting other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Initially, the plan will be implemented in the 79 municipalities with the highest crime rate. "It's up to the FANB, the Army, the People's Guard, the Bolivarian National Police, the Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency, and the Bolivarian Intelligence Service. I am calling you to serve your country. You have to act with more awareness, passion, commitment and love," he told the troops.
The story could have been different. On April 12, 2014, university students led a march to the Attorney General Office in order to submit concrete requests in regards to security and to demand the release of a group of youngsters detained in Táchira state.
