Gov't to decree 'economic, financial recognition' to national security forces
Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich confirmed today that President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner will announce next week an “economic and financial recognition” to the members of national security forces following the deployment of 12,000 agents across the country to counter the impacts of the police protests and lootings that hit several provinces over the past days.
In his everyday brief to the press at the government house, the head of ministers explained "the Gendarmerie, the Federal Police, the Coast Guard and the Airport Security Police complied with the request of provincial governments to protect citizens” who were left “defenceless” by local police officers who launched a protest over salary that prompted a wave of lootings and violence in Córdoba, Jujuy, Chaco, Tucumán and Entre Ríos among other provinces.
“It is an economic and financial recognition that will be implemented by decree next week,” Capitanich stated.
