A recent investigation proved Terceros’s participation in the arrival in the country of the aforementioned war material from Argentina, without complying with the requirements established for their management and in the context of the coup d’état against then President Evo Morales.
The decision to begin criminal inquiry on the former military officer was made public in a press briefing by the Director of Fiscal Management, Supervision and Evaluation, Roberto Almendras, who explained that it all began with the discovery of a letter from Terceros to former Argentinean Ambassador Normando Alvarez Garcia.
In the letter, dated on November 13, 2019, the military officer thanked the authorities from the neighboring country for sending riot ammunition and grenades of different types.
The material arrived in the country in the context of the coup d’état, and investigators do not rule out its use in the repression of followers of the ousted president and defenders of democracy and the country’s institutionality.
The investigation was also undertaken by Argentinean authorities, who are verifying the degree of involvement of the government of former President Mauricio Macri, who was in office at the time.
