After reporting no deaths attributed to gangs on Friday, the country went five days without deaths at the hands of criminal structures in September.
As part of the official policy envisaged in the surveillance plan that includes the emergency regime, the Salvadoran judicial system on Saturday sentenced a gang member from a barrio to 18 to 130 years in prison for his participation in the killing of four people between 2015 and 2016.
The Public Prosecutor’s Office (FGR) stated that the person committed his crimes in several areas in the San Ramon Canton, in the province of San Salvador.
Among the criminal acts committed by this terrorist was the killing of a minibus driver on Route 46, who shot him dead on the night of September 9, 2016 while he was at the transportation company station.
The report added that the person had direct participation in the murders of people he considered his competitors because of their membership in another criminal organization.
Meanwhile, the National Civil Police reported the arrest of two young MS-13 gang members and a minor who was accompanying them in Champantepec Hill in the municipality of Negaba, and the seizure of an assault rifle they were hiding there.
The Foundation explained that the three detainees will be tried on charges of possessing, carrying and driving military weapons and gathering.
