In the midst of a hearing of the Transition Committee, framed by disagreements between representatives of the incoming and outgoing governments, the Attorney General recommended that the next administration not abandon the investigations his agency has carried out against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The head of the Justice Department, Roberto Sánchez Ramos, referred to the attempts to solve the death of the leader of the Boricua Popular Army (The Macheteros), Filiberto Ojjeda Ríos, and the aggression against members of the press reported at the 444 De Diego building.

“The incoming attorney general should continue to insist that the federal government provide a version of what took place there (the night that Ojeda Ríos died) that is acceptable and that is true. The only version we have from them is contrary to the evidence, and the conclusions our prosecutors arrived at,” indicated Sánchez Ramos.

Two suspected agents

He also expressed that the new attorney general should insist that the FBI reveal the identities of the agents involved in the incident at De Diego 444.

“Our investigation showed that there were one or two agents, whose photos we have, who should be accused, and we have the evidence to do so, but we don’t know who they are,” stated the Attorney General.
