Bolivian ex-president Jeanine Anez, who took power after a coup in November 2019, was arrested after police reportedly found her hiding in a “box” under the bed.
A Bolivian Judge ordered four months of preventive custody for Jeanine Anez on Sunday, after she was arrested for what was denounced by Evo Morales, the country’s former president, as “abuse and political persecution”.
Anez confirmed the judge’s order in her Twitter account, saying that she is awaiting trial for a “coup that never happened.” From here I call on Bolivia to have faith and hope. One day, together, we will build a better Bolivia.”
Anez was arrested as part of the investigation into the 2019 events in Bolivia when former president Evo Morales was forced to resign.
Earlier Morales faced mass fabricated demonstrations after allegations of election fraud. The prosecution now considers the events of autumn 2019 a coup.
