Son of Chapo Guzmán has links to Bolivia

The Sinaloa Cartel was linked to Bolivia during the government of Evo Morales.

National Migration Director Marcel Rivas said one of the sons of Mexican drug trafficker "Chapo" Guzmán was in Bolivia in 2016.

In addition, the head of government Arturo Murillo said that Iván Guzmán obtained credentials to enter the national legislature.

The entry was not detected because the migration system was not connected to Interpol.

Iván Guzmán is the brother of Ovidio Guzmán, famous for having been captured and released last month by Mexican authorities in the face of the war unleashed by the cartel in the city.

Washington reported that the Guzman brothers are an active part of the drug trafficking network of the Sinaloa Cartel.

According to local newspaper reports, Jesús, another of the brothers, was in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in 2011, where he took air piloting classes.

Ideologization of children in Chilean schools

Deputies from the political coalition of Chile Vamos presented formal complaints to the Minister of Education against communist ideologies taught in schools.

The 30 complaints are for violations of the constitutional rights and guarantees of indoctrinated minors.

The Minister of Education said, "The political indoctrination of children in schools by those who are called to educate them is a form of violence and a violation of their rights."

Several videos were published on social networks where Chilean children sing political slogans.

Many argue that indoctrination is one of the key factors in the social protest that Chile faces today with thousands of young people on the streets.

Piñera: "It's time to say enough"

 

Chilean President Sebastián Piñera today said he is tired of the crisis the country is going through with sustained social protests and political disputes, after an emergency meeting with his Cabinet.

Quote: ["The time has come to say enough, the government is doing its job." "Violence is causing damage that can be irreparable to the body and soul of our society.]

He also urged the approval of the bills sent by the executive such as the anti-looting law, the anti-barricades law and the anti-hooded law 

Pinera called for the passage of the bill that would allow the armed forces to protect "key" infrastructure and free the police for other security functions.  

Duque asked to resume talks with ELN

After nine days of strikes in Colombia, social organizations made new demands to President Iván Duque to start a dialogue.

The request would include resuming peace negotiations with the Marxist guerrilla National Liberation Army (ELN).

The possibility of a peace dialogue was cut off in January after 22 national police cadets were killed in an ELN car bomb attack at the police academy in Bogotá.

Duque had proposed a Great National Conversation that would include businessmen, economic associations, and other sectors, which in principle was not accepted by the National Strike Committee.
