Marino Vinicio Castillo, who also heads the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission, warned of upheaval and difficulties, because many dangerous things roam about the country, the third time the official makes a similar warning this year.

He said those who linked to organized crime must suffer the consequences, because there cannot be “sacred cows.”
