Bolivia's Prosecutor's Office was asked to investigate repression

La Paz - Bolivian deputy Sonia Brito (Movement To Socialism, MAS) today called on the Public Prosecutor to investigate the 34 confirmed deaths in protests against the de facto government.

The parliamentarian of the majority party in the Bolivian Congress demanded that it be investigated in what conditions and situation those 34 people lost their lives, while denouncing other human rights violations.

Brito denounced that the administration of the self-proclaimed president Jeanine Áñez gagged the press and commits other flagrant human rights violations, already denounced by international organizations.

At least eight people died from gunshot wounds last Tuesday in the town of Senkata, in the city of El Alto, although the Ministry of Defense insists that his troops have not opened fire.

This Thursday a massive demonstration with coffins of the fallen in El Alto marching to the center of La Paz was also dissolved with tear gas and rubber ammunition.

The community leaders of El Alto, a stronghold of former President Evo Morales, rejected de facto government versions of alleged terrorist acts with dynamite and rudimentary weapons.

The self-proclaimed president of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, lamented the eve the deaths occurred in the city of El Alto by the military repression endorsed by her de facto government.

Last Tuesday at least nine people died, eight of them of gunshot wounds, during the repression of an attempt by the social movements to take an energy plant in the town of Senkata.

Áñez launched this call to 'build together the Bolivia for which we are all fighting' after passing a decree that exempts the Army from any criminal responsibility for what they may do to restore and maintain order.

This Thursday people were also dissolved with tear gas and rubber ammunition, a massive demonstration that loaded with the coffins of the fallen from El Alto to the heart of this capital.

Community leaders of El Alto, a stronghold of former President Evo Morales, rejected de facto government versions of alleged terrorist acts with dynamite and rudimentary weapons.

Morales resigned on November 10 amid a spiral of violence, to prevent further bloodshed, but repression and deaths in the name of order have continued.

The opposition deputy Áñez self-proclaimeed herself interim president until the call for new elections, and passed a decree that exempts the Army from criminal responsibility for actions to restore order.
