In a note to the Nation, organizations of the civil society expressed their solidarity with the relatives of the children and rejected the action taken by the agents of the National Police linked to the shooting of October 23 in San Carlos.
“Law 74 of October 29 of 2010, declaring that members from the Police can’t be arrested for cases of crimes committed through the use of force, is a backward step in terms of human rights and puts all the citizens of this country in danger,” says the statement.
The note, issued by 12 organizations of human rights, also rejects the three pardons granted in the last three years benefiting over 120 police officers processed for all kinds of common crimes.
On the other hand, the CNA considered this is a law in charge of protecting police agents whenever they violate the citizens’ human rights. Santander Tristán, president in charge, regretted what happened to the children in San Carlos and said they will create a commission to do a follow up on the investigations carried out by the Public Prosecutor on this case.
