La Paz, Nov 21 (Prensa Latina) Lawyer of the relatives of victims of the Pando massacre, Mary Carrasco, filed charges against ex Pando Prefect Leopoldo Fernandez, as the main responsible for the crime.

  According to Cambio daily, the procedure initiated before members of the Sixth Court of Sentence in La Paz also included another 26 people, all of them involved in terrorism, murder, serious and minor injuries and criminal association.

She said the relatives are requesting a 30-year sentence without the right to pardon against the prefect, who is the alleged responsible for the deaths of at least 25 farmers, who were ambushed, tortured and riddled with bullets by paramilitary forces.

The jurist accused the former prefect to play the victim only to enjoy political benefits and distort the criminal process against him for the killing of September 11, 2008.
