Bolivians Demand to Prevent Ex Leaders Flight

Sucre, Bolivia, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) Rural residents from the department of Chuquisaca asked on Tuesday to expel from the country three Bolivian former presidents and one vice president, who claimed a recent alleged political harassment.

  The rural leader Faustino Yucra presented the demand to the foreign ministry and the ministry of government and migration to take the necessary measures regarding this subject.

The leader highlighted that the ex presidents Jorge Quiroga (2001-2002), Carlos Mesa (2003-2005) and Eduardo Rodriguez Veltze (2005-2006) and former vice president Victor Hugo Cardenas (1993-1997) have to be try in Bolivia.

The request was made before the ex minister of government (1997-2001) and candidate to the post of major in La Paz Guillermo Fortun fled the country last week.

On this matter, the Minister of Justice Nilda Copa warmed that ex officials could continue fleeing after the election on April 4.

Copa stated that the Bolivian government has no political or legal strategy and only appeals to those people’s conscience to stay in Bolivia and prove their innocence.
