The Armed Forces and the National Civil Police are not armed groups, but institutions explicitly recognized by the Constitution, so the proposed change cannot refer to them.
One of the reforms proposed by Vice President Felix Ullo is that armed groups are concerned about lawyers and human rights defenders.
Currently, the last paragraph of Article 7 of the Republican Constitution explicitly prohibits armed groups: the phrase “the existence of armed groups of a political, religious or trade union nature is prohibited.”
However, the draft plan of the Provisional Commission states: “The existence of armed groups is prohibited except in cases provided by law.”
According to the lawyers consulted, the riot is confusing because it does not specify which armed groups it can refer to, except that it opens the door to the existence of other types of armed groups.
“It is important to understand that neither the Armed Forces nor the BNCO are armed groups: they are institutions directly recognized by the Constitution, not armed groups,” explains Constitutional Advocate Enrique Anaya.
For the legal expert, it is important that the intent or ad hoc committee clarifies the purpose for which this clause is included.
It is not clear here what he is saying. It is not clear to me what cases the law will provide, “he said.
Due to the lack of information and the dictatorial features shown by Naib Phukel’s government, the prosecutor fears that even this subdivision will open the door to armed groups such as the Hugo Chavez-Nicolas Maduro regimes in Venezuela. Of the Cuban regime. Castrosine.
“Given the dictatorial nature of the current administration, this makes us speculate … I do not know if this refers to Cuban neighborhood groups or Bolivarian security circles,” Anaya said.
The lawyer went further, however he clarified that this was speculation due to lack of information, and said he feared it was a legitimate type of gang.
“If we combine the circumstances under which press hearings are held that there will be negotiations between this administration and the gangs, whether the Supreme Court will take into account whether it will decide on the deportation of gang members or not … that is pure speculation. I don’t know if it’s going to happen … we do not know.

Although he did not specify whether there was a possibility of making changes in the wording of the proposed articles, Vice President Felix Ulova has been meeting with some departments for a week.
Human rights lawyer Celia Metrono expressed concern about the open door if the reform is approved as it is.
The proposed reform of Article 7 of the Constitution leaves a very dangerous ambiguity by attempting to remove the clear barrier to the existence of armed groups of a political nature. The proposed reform seeks to open up the existence of armed groups of a political nature, with the exception of cases filed by a law that is not specified, ”he said.
Metrono puts his finger on the motives shown by the political actors associated with this government.
“This can be understood in different ways, depending on the motives publicly expressed by the actors involved in the current government administration. Has been charged, ”the lawyer argued.
