Bolivia Adopts Anti-Corruption Measures

Sucre, Bolivia, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian Attorney General Mario Uribe reported on Tuesday that he issued an instruction to implement precautionary measures against those accused of corruption, to avoid that they flee the country.

  Uribe extended the regulation to district attorneys that are investigating public corruption cases, to avoid what happened recently with ex Government Minister of Hugo Banzer (1997-2001) Guillermo Fortun, who fled to Chile.

The judicial authority said that in this kind of cases, it is relevant to adopt the necessary measures, especially if they are public corruption crimes.

Vice Governmental Coordination Minister Wilfredo Chavez expressed the need for greater dynamics in justice and investigation authorities to avoid flights.

Greater dynamics is necessary to fight impunity, degradation and illegal enrichment, and also that authorities investigate quickly and judges administer sentences with great responsibility, he said.
