Bolivian police have rescued Chilean who had been abducted in his country and moved to Bolivia, where they tortured him to ask his family for the amount of money in case five people were arrested, according to official sources today.
Bolivia's Minister of the Interior Carlos Romero explained in coaching with the media in Cochabambi that the police had managed to find a 24-year-old Robinho Camila Castilla, who was taken by the kidnappers to Bolivia, Sabaya, about thirty minutes to the land with the Chilean border.
Romero said the perpetrators tortured and recorded a young man to send relatives of the kidnapped to seek $ 20,000 in ransom.
After torture, a young Chilenian from Sabaye was transferred to the city of Cochabamba, in the center of Bolivia, the interior minister said.
The minister said the kidnapping occurred on December 26 in Iquique, and the young man was "interned by an unauthorized border crossing" in Bolivia.
Romero showed the boy was released into an immigration office.
For its part, the commander of the Bolivian police, Rómulo Delgado, reported on the arrest of five people, four Bolivians and one Colombian allegedly linked to the kidnapping.
