Young farmer Roger Dill said that while Puerto Rican police ignored their complaints, the TEG announced on its website Utuado as one of the sites where they offered training in military tactics and survival in the jungle.
The website on a popular social network was closed on Sunday after residents of Utuado began to warn of military practices in the forested areas of the municipality and on the river Tanamá.
Sonia Santiago, a spokeswoman for Mothers Against War, said the company aims to train mercenaries for the companies involved in the wars of occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan.
TEG representatives refused to give details of its presence in Puerto Rico, but government officials claimed that the company had not requested permission to operate in the municipality.
We began to hear gunshots and thought it was hunting, but then we started hearing explosions, which rattled our homes, farmer Pluma Barbara told reporters.
Dill, who runs a small ecotourism business, said close to his farm, devoted to organic cultivation, helicopter gunships were used and parachute jumps performed during the day time and at night.
He reported that the regional director of the Puerto Rican police Lt. Col. Marcos Ramos, paid no attention to complaints from residents of Utuado.
