In an interview with the Latin American Brief media, journalist Pablo Fernandez, of Cartago TV, specified that it was not a military base.
Fernandez added that if there is a dispute about showing up or being there with the Rapid Deployment Units, with medical issues, health issues, and a weather issue, they give you input.
“If there is a flood and strong problems such as earthquakes occur, you have the rapid deployment unit equipped with the latest technology to treat climate incontinence or environmental disasters,” he added.
Fernandez explained that many organizations are asking the provincial government to report on what is happening.
In part of the text they provided in the Judicial Protection Act, they asserted that it was necessary to have access to public information regarding the base to be installed, according to what the county government and the United States government had said publicly: it would be built with money from the country from the north, specifically from the Southern Command.
