A Bolivian Court has issued arrest warrant to the former interim President, Jeanine Anez who seized power in a coup d’etat in late 2019 alongside several of her senior ministers, claiming that they are a fight risk.
According to the court, Anez and nine other senior officials from her administration are charged with terrorism, sedition and conspiracy.
Anez has resorted to twitter to claim a political vendetta saying the political persecution has begun.
Earlier in November, general elections were three times delayed by the Anez de facto government which nonetheless saw Luis Arce from the movement for socialism, MAS take office when he won in a landslide election in October, nineteen.
Anez, a former Senator from the Beni region in Bolivia rose to power in the chaos of November, 2019 when a coordinated campaign by domestic and international forces attempted to void the re-election of MAS leader and then President Evo Morales the previous month.
After right wing militias and sympathetic police forces locked out MAS lawmakers and Anez found herself the head of a rump parliament, she declared herself the interim President on November, twelve.
