Resolution on Bolivia

Meeting of the SI Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean in Montevideo, Uruguay, 17-18 May 2018

Original: Spanish

The Socialist International Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean, meeting in Montevideo on 17-18 May 2018:

Reiterates the declaration of the XXV Congress of the Socialist International in May 2017 in Cartagena de Indias, in regard to judicial restrictions on political leaders in Latin America.

The Committee expresses once again its concern over the judicial restrictions in Bolivia that affect the leader of its member party National Unity, Samuel Doria Medina, by decisions of the courts that systematically restrict his trips abroad when these are of a political nature.

The Committee declares that to restrict his movements and the international dimension of his work, does not correspond to reasonable measures in a democratic state and rule of law.
