    On December 9, the Senate’s Public Safety Committee began debating article by article the bill that tipifies as a crime the alteration of public peace through the execution of acts of violence, better known as the “anti-sacking” bill. This initiative, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies, is part of a series of bills that raise penalties for crimes against public order, in the context of the social crisis affecting the country since October 18. The package of measures is completed with an initiative to modernize the Carabineros and the Investigative Police, among others.  President Sebastián Piñera asked Congress to give them urgent treatment, so it is expected that the bill will advance quickly despite the many proposals for amendment made by senators from different political spaces.
