Former Bolivian President Jeanine Anez was arrested last night in an operation on the outskirts of the city of Trinidad, the capital of the Benin department. The information was confirmed by Interior Minister Carlos del Castillo, who communicated the news through his personal Twitter account.
Anez has been charged with terrorism, insurgency and conspiracy in the alleged “coup” trial against former President Evo Morales in 2019.
“I inform the Bolivian people that Mrs. “Jeanine Añez has already been arrested and is now in the hands of the police,” Del Castillo wrote.
Morales’ socialist MAS party returned to power in last October’s elections.
“Political persecution has begun,” Anez said in her post. “MAS has decided to return to the styles of dictatorship. A shame, because Bolivia does not need dictators, it needs freedom and solutions “./ A2news
