Declaration on Bolivia

Meeting of the SI Council in Geneva, 7-8 July 2022

Original: Spanish

The Council of the Socialist International, meeting in Geneva on 7 – 8 July, 2022, expresses its concern about the situation affecting the former president of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, who remains in prison in her country for a trial in which dispositions established by the Bolivian constitution have been ignored.

The Council recalls and endorses the declaration on Judicial Independence adopted by the SI Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean a little over a month ago and makes a new call for the independence of the judiciary and the full restoration of the rule of law in Bolivia.
