In a request for a report in the House of Representatives, government minister Eduardo Del Castillo presented images that correspond to an event that took place in the Yungas in 2020, as if they were from July of this year, when the police officer Miguel Ángel Quispe had died, the journalist assured the area, Galo Huebner.
On September 7, the government minister participated in a request for a report by MP Beto Astorga of the Civic Community on the circumstances in which Corporal Quispe died in the Yungas area amid a conflict between two sides of the departmental association of coca producers (Adepcoca).
Journalist Galo Hubner from FMBolivia radio in the Yungas area said that “there is nowhere to be lost”. In this way, he assured that the pictures shown by the minister do not correspond to the events of July 2021.
“These are images that were taken in late August 2020 when there was a conflict in the industry over coca cultivation, but they do not correspond to the alleged events of July 3 that the minister says where a police officer died,” said Hubner on the Compañera radio.
The journalist explained that the images in the video that the Prime Minister showed in a request for a report actually correspond to another coca-growing conflict that took place in the San Juan sector, the San Juan de Tocoroni region, at the end of August
