Former President Áñez rejects parliamentary commission and asks for help from abroad

The former interim president of Bolivia Jeanine Áñez declared this Tuesday her "rejection" to the visit of a commission of the Bolivian Parliament and requested that international organizations intercede to "recover" the rights that you consider were violated.

In a handwritten text that was disseminated on his social networks, Áñez maintains that the parliamentary commission "it is a political commission" and that his intention is not to "to ensure" for his human rights or the state of his health, after ten months of his imprisonment.

"I require international organizations, which are accredited and who truly care about my health and physical integrity, to help me regain all my rights", he points out.

In the letter Áñez is defined as "political prey" and points to the president of the country, Luis Arce, the former president Evo Morales, "the elite" of the ruling Movement for Socialism (MAS) and Bolivian justice as the main responsible for the violation of their rights.

Last week, Áñez published another letter in which he declared in "defenselessness" following a judge’s denial of a request for release for finding "risk of escape" Y "obstruction" in the processes for which it is accused.

The former temporary head of state is serving preventive detention for crimes of terrorism, sedition and conspiracy for the case called "coup" for which, in the first instance, imprisonment for four months was ordered, which was later extended to six.

Later another criminal process called "coup II" with accusations of non-compliance with duties and resolutions against the Constitution, for which his imprisonment was extended for another six months.

Last December, Áñez had already denounced what he considers a "psychological torture" for some altercations with officials of the jail where she is being held in La Paz.

During his detention, almost ten months ago, Áñez suffered several health problems such as a hypertension crisis and on one occasion he injured himself an arm stating that he no longer wanted to live.

The Government of Bolivia considers that Áñez came to power in 2019 through a "coup" and not by Constitutional succession in her capacity as second president of the Senate after the resignation of Evo Morales and the massive resignation of the authorities in the line of succession.
