“The @IntlCrimCourt, the world’s highest court of justice to prosecute genocides and crimes against humanity, has rejected the false accusations from the coup-plotting right wing that wanted to blame us for the deaths of Bolivian brothers. It is a victory of truth over falsehood,” the former president wrote on Twitter.

Morales assured in another tweet that the 69-page conclusive investigation, “elaborated by Prosecutor Karim A.A. Khan QC, has established that there is no cause-effect relation between the August 2020 road blockades and the deaths of sisters and brothers by Covid-19. Another lie collapses.”

According to the leader of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS), the investigation established that the popular protests were provoked by “the eagerness of the de facto government to usurp power.”

Morales affirmed that contrary to what was falsely denounced, the leaders of the blockades gave way to the oxygen tanks “that our people needed,”

On this basis, Morales denounced that for defending the poorest, nationalizing natural resources and defending Bolivia’s sovereignty, “they persecute, accuse and defame us without evidence in order to eliminate us politically”.

He added in reference to the determination of the ICC: “(…) The truth always comes to light. Together with our people, we work and march free and with dignity.”
