The governor of Santa Cruz, Luis Fernando Camacho, confirmed this Monday that he will testify this Thursday in the context of the alleged “coup” before the public prosecutor in La Paz.
He claimed he had already been notified and would attend despite the illegality of the case.
“We never did anything illegal. In 2019, together with a large majority of Bolivians, I peacefully defended democracy after the monumental deception they did to us, ”he said in a statement.
He claimed that “history is not tainted and the masistic government will not be able to change the facts at will. My decision is to present myself to testify, to defend the noble cause of all Bolivians, the defense of democracy.
“I condemn Bolivia and the international community that this is a political process, and in my capacity as elected governor of Santa Cruz I will never give up defending our democracy,” he said.
He concluded by stating: “Evo and I are responsible for what happened in October 2019: He cheated on the country and I defended it.”
