Siles thus alluded to the Potosi Civic Committee and the Pro Santa Cruz Civic Committee, which declared the country’s leaders persona non grata and warned they would overthrow them.
The mere fact of publicly haranguing and mentioning President Luis Arce and Vice President David Choquehuanca, legally constituted with 55 percent of votes as persona non grata, or saying that they will oust the president are actions that should be investigated, he told the state channel Bolivia TV.
“These are acts of sedition, terrorism and conspiracy,” he said.
He also mentioned the president of the Pro Santa Cruz Civic Committee, Romulo Calvo, who, referring to the violent acts in Potosi, where a peasant young man died, said that “they will take to the streets and oust that government.”
The Public Prosecutor’s Office and and the Executive Body will promote criminal investigations with total objectivity, complying with duly prosecution to find those responsable, Siles said.
The indefinite strike was convened by the civic organizations to condemn Law 1386 of the National Fight Strategy Against the Legitimization of Illicit Profit and Financing of Terrorism.
