If you believe that the controls of the last few days –  countrywide vehicular restrictions with daytime and nighttime spotchecks,  and the closing of all retail business save for supermarkets, pharmacies, banks and home food delivery and the daytime – things are going to get even tougher, assures Daniel Calderón, the director of the Fuerza Publica (national police).

The objective of the hardening of these actions during Semana Santa, seek to ensure effective compliance with the new restrictions issued by the Government, in effect to Sunday, April 12.

In coordination with all the police forces in the country, significant efforts are being made to comply with border surveillance, supervision in commercial premises and vehicle restriction, without neglecting citizen security.

“We have had important responsibilities to ensure compliance with the guidelines that have to do mainly with the closure of premises, in the first instance bars and restaurants, but now the control extends to all the premises that have attention to the public,” added Calderón.
