Former President Carlos Mesa and Civic Community (CC) Chairman Carlos Mesa said Saturday that the government’s arguments about former President Jeanine Áñez’s health “are not serious or credible”.
“The government’s statements on the status of former President Jeanine Áñez are neither serious nor credible. The Permanent Assembly of Human Rights and the OHCHR, as independent bodies, must review their situation. I demand the end of his political imprisonment. Let him defend himself in freedom ”, he published this Saturday on his Twitter account.
The former president spoke after hearing a report from Government Minister Eduardo del Castillo about the self-harm committed by Jeanine Áñez in Miraflores prison, where she spent five months in the case of the alleged “coup d’état”.
Castillo said this Saturday: “I regret to inform the Bolivian people that Ms. Áñez tried to harm herself early this morning (Saturday), but she has some small scratches on one of her arms, but there are nothing “to worry”.
