“The families (of Manuel and Subía) are in a very unfortunate state, with great concern, but we have information that they are safe and that reassures us, but this political persecution is in the style of drug dictatorships,” said Graz. to El Potosí.

The uncertainty about the whereabouts of Manuel and Subía arose on Thursday night when the police carried out a raid in Compipo. That same night, the police also arrested the former president of the civil organization, Marco Antonio Pumari, who was a “disappeared person”. It was not until the next day that the police reported that Pumari had been arrested and taken to a province of Potosí, although he was being held in the center of the department’s capital.
