The opposition leader of the civil community and former president of Bolivia, Carlos Mesa, said that the threats against the life of the President of the Permanent Assembly of Human Rights (Apdhb), Amparo Carvajal, and the harassment of the government ministry were not a coincidence, but a “political aim of the MAS “.
“My solidarity with Amparo Carvajal, a woman whose courage and consistency in defending human rights is admirable. The threats to her life, the attempts to ignore her leadership and the harassment of the government ministry are neither coincidences nor coincidences a political goal of the MAS “Mesa said on his Twitter account.
In the last few hours, the human rights activist has been the target of criticism from state actors. The Vice Minister of the Interior, Nelson Cox, accused her of inciting a crime and allegedly re-articulating a “criminal organization” like the Cochala Youth Resistance (RJC).
After Carvajal traveled to Cochabamba, he visited Milena Soto and met with other members of this organization.
Two topics in two different videos that were circulating on social networks threatened Amparo Carvajal directly with burning down his house and the headquarters of the Apdhb in La Paz.
Carvajal has called on judicial authorities to release those detained for “political persecution”, including former President Jeanine Áñez, who has been in Miraflores prison since March and is charged with riot, conspiracy and terrorism.
