The legal representatives of the federal cargo transport in Los Reyes, Tocumbo and Peribán claim to have deposit receipts with the ministerial and Civil Guard commanders, who allegedly extorted them up to 50 thousand pesos per truck, in exchange for allowing free travel.
Marina Morales Mendoza, representative of the Union of Transporters, and Orlando Estévez Salinas, legal representative, announced in an interview with Quadratín that the officials allegedly detained truck drivers and subjected them to inspections without a court order, as even giving them psychotropic drugs, to blackmail them with the request for the car and to make the drivers available in the Public Ministry.
Minutes before the dialogue table with the state authorities, Marina Morales Mendoza stated: “the blockade does not come from a particular case, but from the fatigue of the citizens,” because they repeatedly stopped and, probably, implanted capsules of asenlix, better known. as parakeets in popular slang, and whose side effect is insomnia.
Orlando Estévez Salinas, lawyer for those affected, pointed out that they already recognized the modus operandi of the Civil Guard officers and ministerial commanders who, for no good reason, scratched the number of the machine and sprinkled acid. In this way, they erase the means of identification and accuse them of stealing the unit.
So far “we have 179 registered cases, nine documented with proof of deposit,” he said.
When asked about the use and consumption of the famous parrots, he argued that it is a medicine used to lose weight, but he did not want to detail the number of truck drivers affected by obesity and if they have a medical prescription to do so. to break the arguments of the Civil Guard regarding the possession of the pills.
