The first call, therefore, to all Chileans to collaborate so that there are no fires, and therefore, not to generate situations of risk, but also to say with great determination that the Government will seek the criminal and criminal responsibilities of all those who intentionally generate a fire, “he added.
He also said that “we are not going to accept that forest fires are intentionally generated that also put people’s safety at risk and in that we are going to be inflexible in terms of complaining and persecuting, requesting the necessary diligences, the identification and responsibility of those who have committed these crimes. ”
