The government reported that it has given urgency to 16 security and public order bills. In addition, the new president of the Senate, Juan Antonio Coloma, proposed to dispatch all security initiatives in the next 90 days. Gabriel Boric’s government gave urgency to 16 security bills, such as the one that creates the Ministry of Public Security, a new penal code or the strengthening of the intelligence system. In addition, the new president of the Senate, Juan Antonio Coloma, proposed a legislative fast-track. There are 16 bills, among them, the one that creates the Ministry of Public Security, the one that strengthens the intelligence system and the one that establishes a new penal code, which received urgency from the Government for their discussion. Of the total, 9 have the qualification of extreme urgency, that is to say that the project must be known and dispatched within 15 days, such as the one that modifies the penalties of the law of arms control and the one that improves the persecution against drug trafficking and organized crime, which is one step away from becoming law. The senator of Renovación Nacional, Manuel José Ossandón, affirmed that “it is necessary to recover the street and restore respect for the Carabineros”, for which reason he pointed out that the regulations on the use of force must be modified. Along these lines, the Undersecretary of the Interior, Manuel Monsalve, announced that the Executive will submit before the end of April a project on the legal regulation of the use of force in the Carabineros.
