The former president irregularly used that amount from a total of 1.731 million dollars that she requested from the state-owned Yacimiento Petroliferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB), according to YPFB CEO Wilson Zelaya.

The money was part of a larger outlay for a YPFB’s program to fight the pandemic in the country, ordered by former Minister of Hydrocarbons Víctor Zamora and then YPFB CEO Herland Soliz.

‘It was ordered that YPFB and its subsidiaries, in an extraordinary way, support the fight against the disease,’ YPFB Head of Corporate Transparency Erika Chavez said.

According to Chavez, the irregularity was detected through a probe which led to an internal audit to find more details and determine accountability.
