Cox says protests in Potosí are demanding impunity for Pumari

For Vice Minister of the Interior Nelson Cox, the march and council called for this Tuesday in Potosí demand impunity for former leader Marco Pumari for the events of 2019.

“Today’s mobilizations by the Potosí Citizens’ Committee are aiming for impunity in this case, the fact that the clarification is being hindered is nothing else. Let’s not forget that Pumari was arrested for obstructing an electoral process, that is an electoral crime. This has to do with the involvement of the ordinary commission, the damage and the fire, ”Cox told Unitel.

The deputy minister assured that the former leader should be investigated because of the mobilizations that led to the burning of the Departmental Electoral Tribunal (TED) of Potosí during the 2019 crisis.

The authorities justified the arrest of Pumari and said that there was no violation of his human rights. He claimed that a subpoena before the arrest warrant against the former Ombudsman was not required.

“A subpoena is not required before an arrest warrant; arrest warrants must be carried out that are sufficient to find out the whereabouts of all those directly and indirectly responsible, including accomplices,” he said.
