The Pluri-National Assembly approved the trial against the de facto president and several ministers


27/10/20 – After the coup against Evo Morales, the military forces carried out the massacres of Senkata, in El Alto and Sacaba, Cochabamba.

The Plurinational Legislative Assembly of Bolivia established on Monday the opening of a trial to the president of the de facto government of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez for the Sacaba (Cochabamba) and Senkata (El Alto) massacres and other events.

Parliament’s special commission investigating the massacres has suggested a criminal case against Ministers Karen Longaric of Foreign Affairs; Yerko Núñez, of the Presidency; Arturo Murillo, of the government; Fernando López, of the Defense; Álvaro Coímbra, of Justice; Álvaro Rodrigo Guzmán, of Energías, and María Pinckert, of Environment and Water.

The report of this instance is passed to the plenary session of the Legislature, in which it must be approved or rejected by two thirds.

The commission indicated that Jeanine Áñez must respond to justice for the signing of Supreme Decree 4078, which authorized the armed forces to carry out operations to restore public order and exempted the military from any criminal responsibility.

Upon learning of the decision against her, the de facto president, via his Twitter account, said MAS is resuming the habit of prosecuting those who think differently.

After the coup against Evo Morales in November 2019, military forces carried out the massacres of Senkata, in El Alto, adjacent to La Paz, and Sacaba, in the Cochabamba department.

In these military and police operations 37 people died, 27 of whom died from gunshot wounds.

The relatives of the victims are awaiting clarification of the facts in those days. To date, the investigation is based on information provided by civilians.
