In the same way, the barista ambassadors who traveled to Ibagué reported clashes with each other and with the Mobile Riot Squad (Esmad) that was present at the Tolima sports venue.
This is how the municipal administration, through Milton Restrepo, city government secretary, reported the sanctions for disturbing public order at the sporting event.
