According to the private TV channel 24 News, the order was given by a constitutional court of Peru, which called for the demolition of the 10 km long and 6.5 feet high wall.

After the defeat and elimination of this group, instead of tearing down the wall, it was expanded and this time it was justified to occupy the lands.
