Bolivian legislator demands justice for crimes in Santa Cruz

La Paz,Nov 15 (Prensa Latina) The president of the Bolivian Chamber of Senators, Andrónico Rodríguez, assured that the material and intellectual authors of crimes committed during the indefinite strike in Santa Cruz must be held accountable.

The head of the Senate held the governor of Santa Cruz, Luis Fernando Camacho, responsible for the damaging consequences of the blockades and violence that paralyzed Santa Cruz and caused losses estimated at almost US$ 900 million in 25 days.

He considered that Camacho must assume responsibility for his actions, and those in charge of administering justice must set a precedent.

As visible heads of the so-called Interinstitutional Committee of Santa Cruz, Camacho, Rómulo Calvo and the rector of the Gabriel René Moreno Autonomous University, Vicente Cuéllar, called a strike for an indefinite period of time with the demand of ‘census 2023 yes or yes’.

This measure of force transcended the limits of peaceful protest because it was characterized by blockades with the use of violence, racist attacks against indigenous communities and popular neighborhoods, occupation, looting and burning of the headquarters of workers’ and peasants’ organizations.

The Minister of the Presidency, María Nela Prada, informed that the preliminary balance is of four dead, hundreds of wounded, a complaint of gang rape of a minor and diverse expressions of violation of human rights.
