The Supreme Court (TSJ) is analyzing the prosecution’s indictment for the process of accountability against former President Jeanine Áñez. Once approved, you must send the document to the legislative assembly for them to approve the process. However, the Movement to Socialism (MAS) does not have the two-thirds of the votes required for this and activates other processes by ordinary means.
Former MAS MP Lidia Patty told through her lawyer that she had expanded the case against the former president for the alleged crime of political violence and announced that after the report of the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) was presented.
Since last week the members of the MAS assembly have been asking their opposition colleagues from Creemos and Comunidad Ciudadana (CC) for support and appealing for their commitment to justice and history so that “the massacres of Sacaba and Senkata do not go unpunished”. The “moral stature” of its leaders is exposed.
On Monday, CC tabled a settlement proposal to smooth out the liability process, but previously called for a change of attorney general and laying the foundations for a reform of the judiciary. The plan was rejected by the government and Carlos Mesa was accused of promoting impunity.
Meanwhile, the ruling party is already promoting other proceedings against Jeanine Áñez. “Now we are expanding the process because of political violence, precisely because she was not allowed to exercise her office as MP (Lidia Patty) at these moments of the coup,” said the lawyer for former MP Marcelo Valdez.
They will include Camacho in the inquiries
Lidia Patty’s lawyer, Marcelo Valdez, said that the former MP was allegedly banned from exercising her office as lawmaker during the political and social conflicts in the country in November 2019, presented on Monday, accompanied by a memorial to the public prosecutor for the former ombudsman and current governor of Santa Cruz, Luis Fernando Camacho, to testify in the department of Santa Cruz and not necessarily move to La Paz, as he is the main culprit in the “coup” case.
He assumed that new situations emerged in the GIEI report, such as “summary executions”, alleged crimes against “humanity” and others.
