The Attorney General Office has commissioned one national and two local public prosecutors to investigate the death of four individuals and the injuries inflicted to another last Friday, September 22nd in a mine located in sector Turumbá, La Paragua, southern Bolívar state.

The query started last Saturday following a notice from Scientific, Penal and Criminology Investigation Agency (Cicpc) agents, who learned about the admittance of an injured person to a hospital in Ciudad Bolívar.

Battlefield No. 5 was requested to identify the army officers engaged in operations in the area on September 22nd and 23rd, the number of operations and the areas where they were conducted. According to the victim, the injuries were caused by army officers. Also, an onsite inspection was conducted to collect evidence.
