Kaliman and Calderón will be tried in absentia if they fail to respond to the prosecutor's order

Prosecutors said Tuesday that former commanders of the armed forces Williams Kaliman and police Yuri Calderón had already been notified by edict and that after the deadline, both of them would be charged with “coup d’état” in the case.

Kaliman and Calderón were the commanders of their respective institutions in 2019 and both proposed the resignation of Evo Morales on November 10, 2019.

Prosecutor Omar Mejillones pointed out that it was not possible to locate the ex-commanders, even though raids were carried out on the houses they were staying in, for which they were notified by decree.

He stated that after the edict was issued, you have 10 days to proceed with the process. He pointed out that in the case of Calderón the deadline has already been met and the same is expected in the case of Kaliman.

In absence

Prosecutors said it was the Ministry of Public Relations’ intention to bring the two former commanders together so that the competent court could decide to deal with them in absentia.


In this case, Jeanine Áñez, who is in preventive detention and whose legal defender has applied for an omission from detention, is also processed on the grounds of her deteriorating health.

Prosecutor Mejillones pointed out that the elements presented by Áñez’s defense will be analyzed in order for the State Ministry to respond to the request.
