Bolivia’s Far-Right Former President Jeanine Áñez Arrested, Facing Terrorism Charges

HeadlineMar 15, 2021

In Bolivia, former interim President Jeanine Áñez has been arrested and faces terrorism charges over her involvement in the 2019 military coup that overthrew then-President Evo Morales. Other members of Áñez’s right-wing interim government also face possible charges, as well as military and police accused of carrying out massacres and violent repression against Indigenous communities and supporters of Morales. Evo Morales returned to Bolivia last November — after one year in exile — following the election of President Luis Arce and the return of Morales’s MAS party.
