In the last hours, they went to the State Department to speak with its president, Rogelio Maita, the US business director Charisse Phillips, and the Brazilian actor Octavio Henrique Dias García Coates, according to the newspaper Al-Diber.
In recent days, the Deputy Spokesman for the US State Department, Galina Porter, has expressed her concern about the judicial process that has begun against former President Janine Anez and the previous authorities in her government.
Faced with this position, Maita reminded the US diplomatic representative in the country of the duty to refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of another country, in accordance with the provisions of international agreements and within the framework of bilateral cooperation. On the other hand, after the words issued by the Brazilian President, Jair Bolsonaro, referring to the recent arrests ordered by the Office of the Prosecutor General, the Bolivian Ministry of Foreign Affairs referred the message of UN principles to the ambassador of that border region, Bolivia press reports.
This nation in the Andes and Amazon is going through a process of reconstruction and defense of democratic institutions, and last Saturday as a result of the coup case, which has been investigated since the end of 2020, Anez and former leaders Alvaro Coimbra (Justice) and Rodrigo Guzman (Energy) were arrested.
The charges against civilians and soldiers who contributed to the November 2019 coup include the crimes of sedition, conspiracy and terrorism.
However, the event generates a chain reaction to the search for justice on the part of the opposing forces of the current administration.
The Bolivian State Department and Senate earlier described the OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro’s statement as an intervention contrary to the preventive detention of Anez.
