The brazilian Congressional candidate and former governor Julio Campos argued in favour that the army occupies the border brazilian city of Cáceres with Bolivia, in a strategy to combat drugs and arms trafficked from the neighboring country.
“We can not fight drug trafficking and smuggling of weapons only with the presence of military police and a small group of Gefron [the Special Frontier]. There are 700 miles of drought border, which should be occupied with the establishment of a permanent military task force , “he said in an interview with Midianews.
Campos initiative coincides with the thoughts and political statements of the opposition presidential candidate José Serra (PSDB). Visiting Cuiabá, in late May, to join a political party, Mr. Serra defended the occupation of the territory of Mato Grosso stating that serves as a cocaine hub into Brazil.
On occasion, the presidential candidate also argued that “the Bolivian government is conniving with the export of drugs to Brazil,” which “ends the lives of our youth.”
“I will personally fight together with Jose Serra to assure that this new policy of Public Safety is implemented , which is essential to the brazilian state of Mato Grosso and the whole country,” added “Julinho”, as the former governor Julio Campos is known in brazilian political circles.
