Venezuelan authorities guard prisoners at the Tocorón prison, which allegedly functions as the “headquarters” of the Aragua Train, during a prison rugby tournament.

After the eviction on June 16 of 23 houses in Cerro Chuño, a poor sector of Arica, in the extreme north of Chile, the police found weapons, drugs and the buried body with signs of torture of a man who was already wearing a Dead month, according to autopsy.

The agents arrested 17 people who were charged with crimes of trafficking and illicit association for drug trafficking, kidnapping, possession of firearms, among other charges.

In some Latin American countries, this type of operation has become common in recent decades, but in Chile, one of the safest countries on the continent, cause commotion.

“I want them to know that we are going to persecute them,” the country’s president, Gabriel Boric, warned days later, referring to the case.
