The documentation indicates accusations of alleged participation and organization of criminal acts such as illicit association, obstruction of the public highway, obstruction of public services and public instigation, due to all the events in a context of violence that occurred during the last two weeks in different parts of the country, when the Movimiento Rescate Nacional (National Rescue Movement) announced demonstrations in protest against the government and its idea of ​​negotiating a loan with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
