20/11/2012 - Partido Popular President Milton Henríquez warned today that the government "is repeating the model from the time of the defence forces."
Henríquez made that statement after the resignation of Customs Director Gloria Moreno de López, who stepped down because the government decided to combine Customs with Immigration and place the new entity under the Ministry of Public Security.
Moreno de López was critical of Minister of Public Security José Raúl Mulino, whom she claimed is trying to consolidate power.
Mulino has also clashed with several other ministers in recent months over his proposals.
Henríquez said that the recent decisions do not only indicate a concentration of power in the hands of the executive, but in the hands of the Ministry of Security. He added that Mulino has proved to be "dangerous" in the use of public power.
