Bolivia parliament approves charges against ex-interim president

The parliament recommends a trial against Jeanine Anez for ‘genocide’ and backs criminal indictment of 11 ministers.

Bolivia’s outgoing parliament approved a motion recommending that ex-interim president Jeanine Anez and her ministers face justice for responsibility over last year’s unrest which left around 30 people dead.

The Chamber of Deputies and the Senate, meeting in joint session, approved on Thursday a parliamentary report on the “massacres of Senkata, Sacaba and Yapacani, which recommends a judgment of responsibility against Jeanine Anez for genocide and other offenses”, according to the Senate’s Twitter account.

Parliament also approved the criminal indictment of 11 ministers.
