A Major with 27 years of service, a Lieutenant with 15 years of service, two Sergeants with 13 years each, and an agent were the five police officers of the National Police who were arrested in the process of making a drug transfer.
The Director General of the National Police, Julio Moltó, said the arrests came as a result of an internal investigation led by the Directorate of Police Intelligence (DIP) and the Office of Professional Responsibility (DRP), allowing them to dismantle the group of corrupt policemen, who were engaged in drug trafficking with civilians.
He also reported that after the arrest of the five police officers, all have have been turned over to the Superior Board for dismissal, and immediately they were handed over to prosecutors who will start their investigation of the facts, so they can face the full weight of the law if they are found to be guilty.
The former police officers remain in custody. (Dia a Dia)
