.- The Bolivian media is reporting that the perpetrator of the April 15 attack on the residence of Cardinal Julio Terrazas of Santa Cruz may have been a member of the Crisis Resolution Tactic Unit (CRTU), which is linked to the Bolivian government. The newspaper “El Deber” reported that attorney Oswaldo Rojas said he would soon reveal “the name of the person who placed the bomb at the home of Cardinal Julio Terrazas. He is a member of the CRTU.”

On September 9, government and police officials disbanded the CRTU after it attacked a group of journalists in the city of Santa Cruz.

The CRTU was made up of 15 specially-trained police officers who are alleged to have participated in various violent detentions, especially in eastern Bolivia.
