O Inspector General Jose Rivera also reportedly fired the Carabineros, the tenth since the case broke out after the death of Camilo Catrillanca. Rivera reportedly resigned on Friday, on the same day that the General Christian Franzani, national director of Order and Security, whom he replaced on an interim basis.
The information appears on Monday in The third, which states that Rivera himself recognized him in his nearest circle in Carabineros. "I'm leaving, I do not want my family to come after me, I'm tired of everything"He told them.
O General Rivera was until Friday the head of the Metropolitan Area. This is the man in charge of the police services of Santiago and the sixth in the command line of the institution. However, with the departure of Franzani, General Rivera was in command of the Order and Security interimly, as a subrogation.
Rivera informed him of his decision to resign the director general last Friday at the Carabineros Officials School., located in Providencia. General Soto, however, asked him to postpone his departure until Wednesday, lest it occur before the interpellation of Chancellor Chadwick on Tuesday in the House of Representatives.
Sources at the institution suggest there could be further layoffs. At the last meeting on Friday, General Soto told the generals present to do an internal review of their assigned staff, and communicate to the middle managers that they would continue to work with institutional trust, but if they wanted to take a step. next, they were within their rights, provided it was Wednesday.
Of all the High Command of Carabineros, six are the positions of general inspectors, that is, those that have more seniority in the institution. However, only five enter the machine to succeed the CEO, once he completes his term or retires early.
With the departure of Franzani, within the institution it is believed that two could be the possibilities of occupying your position. One is the General Fernando Rivero, national director of Support for Operations, but I should take a step on the command line.
The other possibility is General Kurt Haarmman, chief of staff, who would have the confidence of the government, because in 2013 he acted as an adviser to Minister Chadwick, in the first government of Sebastián Piñera.
However, there are some doubts about this possibility. One is that it was intended to wait for this designation and thus replace General Soto in another three years, but the contingency would force him to elevate him on the command line.
With the departure of General Rivera, the name of Haarmman returned to take force, although its proximity to the Interior causes suspicion in Carabineros, because they consider it closer to the politician than to the operation.
Meanwhile, different political sectors demand changes in the structure of the Carabineros. Former Minister of the Interior Jorge Burgos He said that "the first thing is to end the culture of lying, whether it is to accuse innocent people or hide crimes, it is of immeasurable gravity, everything else is secondary."
Meanwhile, for the former secretary of Carabineros, the senator Felipe Harboe, a "deep internal restructuring" is required, with a system of cross-checks and external controls. Changes in the training and promotion system ".
