In the statement entitled “Women of the World in Support of Former President Jeanine Áñez”, activists, former authorities and parliamentarians from at least 22 countries around the world questioned the former President’s detention and viewed it as “political” reasons.
In this context, they asked the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) and the Director of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Michelle Bachelet, “concrete measures” for the situation going through Áñez.
“Áñez remained attached to democratic institutions and led a transition process that led to the election of the new president, Luis Arce,” says one part of the document.
The signatories of the statement were concerned that various state institutions were continuing the allegation without convincing elements.
