Cruelty to animals

The following article appeared in La Razón in La Paz, Bolivia (modified Google translation):
A complaint for "dishonor" to the armed forces by Lieutenant George Muriel, who on June 7 gutted a dog during a military instruction class at the Military School of Engineering (EMI), will be presented today in court. 
"The rector of the EMI issued a press release on Sunday stating that we can apply the Organic Law of the Armed Forces, which states in Article 89 that officers who dishonor their institution should be dismissed," said Susana del Carpio, president of SOS Animals. Colonel Alvaro Rios, president of EMI, said Muriel's action is "isolated" because it was not scheduled by the university.
Under Article 89(e), personnel dismissed for violating the honor and dignity of the armed forces may not rejoin the military except in cases of international conflict.
