Security Being Tightened At The National Assembly

Safety & SecurityAny person seeking access to the National Assembly will be subject to strict review by security, in a measure adopted by the Assembly President, Sergio Galvez, after Mrs. Monica Garcia Serrano threw eggs at the Deputies. Even the journalists who are assigned to cover what happens in the Assembly will be subjected to rigorous controls, and they will have to carry identification. The President of the National Assembly Sergio Galvez said from now on, the security personnel will be assigned to protect the perimeter of the Assembly, and they will not be assigned to individual members. He said in his case he has no bodyguards - his escort is prayer - every time he leaves or returns home. (TVN)

Editor's Comment: Good. There were all kinds of "security" personnel on the payroll, but they had been assigned as personal escorts or bodyguards for each of the individual Deputies in the National Assembly. All 71 of them. And when there was a political dispute, such as what happened a couple of months ago, the security personnel did not respond to the orders of the President of the Assembly, but rather to their individual bosses. In other words, chaos - and no effective security whatsoever. A woman was able to bring in a dozen eggs, which she threw at (and hit) some of the lawmakers.
