The SIC was a branch of the Ecuadorian National Police that was universally feared and despised. They were known to use torture as a routine part of interrogation, and they were suspected of extra-judicial executions and disappearances. SIC agents had always acted with impunity, in part because the police and military have their own judicial systems, separate from the civilian courts. In 1991 the SIC was abolished by presidential decree, and many cases of deaths disappearances were opened up.
