Instead he wants a single civilian ministry to coordinate both functions, with three vice ministries, one each overseeing the police, the military, and the new investigative police that he hopes to create at the same time.
The UN Human Rights Relator, Frank Larue, said of this idea:
"absurd, it should not happen in any country on earth."
But Lobo Sosa will go ahead with it because, as he explained, he finds it difficult to coordinate the two services.
Maybe that's because he has the military doing something it should not be doing, policing the civilian population.
Lobo Sosa tried to argue that the move would also save the government money, but since he proposes to increase the budgets of both, and form a new police investigative unit, there's no real savings here. The bureaucracy actually gets bigger, not smaller.
