LO PAZ, Bolivia (AP) – The former interim president of Bolivia said on Friday he was facing arrest warrants for terrorism and rebellion as prosecutors crack down on officials supporting the ouster of former leader Evo Morales, whose party is now in power. considers a coup
“The political persecution has begun,” said Ine Ani Janes, who headed the Conservative administration that took power after Morales’s resignation in November 2018.
Shez said the ruling Movement for Socialism party had “decided to return to the style of dictatorship”.
The announcement followed Thursday’s decrees issued by the former police chief on Thursday, urging Morales to resign amid national protests over his re-election, which opponents claimed was a hoax.
Alvaro Coimbra, who served as justice minister under Shez, said on Twitter that he was also facing arrest warrants and that one of the deputy ministers had been arrested.
After serving in the presidency for almost 13 years, Morales was deported in November 2019 at the urging of police և military leaders, և եզez, who had moved up a few notches in line, took power when his superiors also resigned.
The arrogant authorities themselves tried to persecute Morales, key members of his government, accusing them of rigging the election and illegally suppressing dissent.
But Morales’ party won the election again under the ousted successor, Luis Arce, and the former leader returned home.
The decision to arrest former General William Caliman and former Chief of Police Ivan Calderon was overturned by the Bolivian Independent Permanent Assembly of Human Rights, a group that originally emerged to counter military dictatorships in the 1970s and 1980s.
Morales’ “allies” and “enemies” claim that they died before or after the deadly persecution.
Calliman and Calderon said that only Morales’s resignation could pacify a troubled nation. Kaliman, appointed by Morales, was replaced shortly after leaving the left.
Also under investigation is the newly elected governor of the state of Santa Cruz, Luis Fernando Camacho, who was a major supporter of efforts to oust Morales. Neither he nor Jesse have been threatened with arrest warrants. Official efforts to interrogate Camacho were halted on Thursday when a large crowd of his followers appeared in the courthouse.
