  • Description

    Uruguay's Parliament debated whether to extend the special powers granted to the military in a special session on Saturday (31 March). The period of the extension debated was 60 days.

    Since February the military has exercised a tutelage over Uruguay's civilian government, which is headed by President Juan Maria Bordaberry. The military has since spoken of corruption in government departments, and has issued specific warnings to the government intended to end existing privileges.

    The military has also accused some unnamed politicians of making secret deals with the now-suppressed Tupamaros urban guerrillas.
