Ready for the revolution


Same US games – different country.

La Paz, Jan 31 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian Government Minister Alfredo
Rada on Thursday ratified the dissolution of two irregular units
functioning parallel to the Intelligence Direction, subordinated to
the National Police.

The top official announced that the closing of the Organism for the
Development of Police Studies (ODEP), previously known as Special
Operations Command (COPES), is in line with supreme decrees.

Rada also accused the US embassy in Bolivia for funding COPES, which
carried out possibly unconstitutional activities.

The minister explained that the organization received technology and
professional training to respond to private interests, and not in
function of the State.

The official also announced that the Task Group for Special Crime
Investigations (GTIDE) was dissolved, and will be now subordinated to
the National Intelligence Direction.

That entity was created to coordinate investigation actions, and
fight crimes of higher social impact.

President Evo Morales stated on Wednesday his government would close
US-funded intelligence police services.
