Safe Homeland plan shows positive results in first day


Caracas, 14 May. AVN.- Less than 24 hours after activation, the Safe Homeland plan shows positive results, said the director of the National Bolivarian Police (PNB), Luis Roberto Karabin.

Speaking to local television, he said that as part of that security program, in the parish of La Vega in Caracas was dismantled a dangerous band, who was dedicated to micro-trafficking.

"This is generating violence and there emerge serious crimes, such as murder and theft," said the official.

He said that in the process three citizens were arrested, named as Wilmer Alexander Zamora, Franklin Daniel Zamora Guerra, and Erick Robinson Campo Zamora, 21, 27 and 18 years old respectively.

"They are presumed to have participated in numerous crimes, because apart from the drug, it was seized large quantity of firearms, including five pistols of different calibers and 195 bundles of marijuana," he added.

He said the seized weapons will be unusable in a public process, to be held on Friday. "With this we are preventing further offenses, including murder," he said.

In another procedure, Giovanni Lugo Perez was arrested because he was found with 17 check books of various banks, a 9mm firearm, bullet-proof vests and military uniforms.

"This citizen is allegedly related to other crimes. We are working together with the Body of Scientific, Penal and Criminal Investigations and these weapons will be made ballistic comparisons, as they are presumed to be involved in violent acts such as murder," Karabin said.

Furthermore, he added that National Police continues to work with the Public Ministry, the Attorney General of the Republic and the National Bolivarian Armed Forces (FANB) in the Safe Homeland Plan.

On Monday, the National Executive launched Safe Homeland Plan in order to ensure the safety, tranquility and the good life of the Venezuelan people.

Communities and Baruta and Sucre municipalities of Miranda state, as well as parishes of Sucre, Antimano, El Valle and El Recreo, the Capital District, will be the pioneers of this program.

For this purpose, 500 points of service to the public were settled and 3,000 troops joined the Bolivarian National Armed Forces.
