At the opening of the workshop “Construyendo País” No.22, which was attended by the Minister of Defense, Guillermo Botero, the Head of State reiterated that "security is a democratic value, because without security, liberties can not be fully exercised".
President Iván Duque exalted the task accomplished by the Security forces, which just one week after the launch of the rewards plan to capture those responsible for the murder of social leaders, it has been possible to capture four of the criminals.
Indeed, at the beginning of the Construyendo País Workshop # 22, in Coveñas (in the department of Sucre), last Saturday, the Head of State said that our "United Security forces are invincible" and he made it clear that thanks to the coordinated work several criminals such as alias 'Cadete', leader of one of the dissidence groups were neutralized; he was also behind the "murder of social leaders".
He in the same way, he expressed his satisfaction with the way in which the number of citizens has increased in the Civic Participation Network, which already has more than 700 thousand people.
He said that the goal for this year, for the Civic Participation Network, is to exceed one million people throughout the country, so that they work "with our police, with our soldiers, helping them to see security with a sense of community."
He said that the rewards policy is a proof of "our firm commitment to the defense of security."
Precisely, on the subject of security, the Head of State recalled that this week, the Military Fort of Tolemaida was the place where the launch of the Security Policy of his Government was made, which covers, among other criteria, the comprehensibility.
He highlighted that security, "in the clearest sense of the word, is a public good that all Colombians want."
President Duque reiterated that "security is a democratic value, because without security, liberties can not be fully exercised".
