Bolivia Issues Arrest Warrant for Evo Morales

HeadlineDec 19, 2019

In Bolivia, prosecutors have issued an arrest warrant for longtime Bolivian President Evo Morales, accusing the ousted leader of sedition and terrorism. Morales was forced to leave Bolivia after being ousted in what he and many others describe as a military coup. Morales says he has a right to return to Bolivia and help his Movement Toward Socialism party campaign in upcoming elections. This is Morales speaking from Argentina.

Evo Morales: “They need to let me enter Bolivia. I’m not a candidate, I won’t be a candidate in these elections, but I have a right to participate in politics like any politician.”
