Former Foreign Minister Karen Longaric warned that Luis Arce’s government will keep its conscience if former President Jeanine Áñez finds herself in an incurable and irreversible situation because she believes her life is hanging by a thread.
The former agency, which is in Germany and will then return to Chile to continue its investigative work, expressed its “deep sadness at the situation in which former President Jeanine Áñez finds herself”.
He said he hoped in the next few days to escape from the prison he has been in since March on charges of alleged crimes of conspiracy, terrorism and sedition in the “coup” case.
“I believe that he can escape prison these days because I have the impression that his life is hanging by a thread and whatever happens to him, which is incurable and irreversible, becomes the conscience of the entire government by Luis Arce, “affirmed the ex-Chancellor in contact with Radio Fides.
He stated that the situation the ex-president finds herself “tears apart the feeling of every Bolivian not only because of the inhuman situation she finds himself in” but also because of the “shameful” violation of her constitutional guarantees and warranties their right to due process. “
He recalled that international mechanisms guarantee due process to all people, which would not happen to the former president.
In the last few hours the Forensic Research Institute (IDIF) carried out an assessment of the ex-president and applied for her to be treated in a hospital for cardiological problems. The ex-authority has been suffering from various health problems for months, but has been denied a judicial exit.
