Members of the Permanent Assembly for Human Rights (APDH) filed charges in Argentinean courts against Bolivia’s self-proclaimed president, Jeanine Añez, for genocide and crimes against humanity after leading the coup d’état against President Evo Morales.

On filing the report on systematic human rights violations by the coup authorities, the APDH invoked the principle of universal jurisdiction that establishes that if crimes against humanity are not investigated in the nation where they were committed, they can be investigated in another country.

The charges were filed against all politicians appointed by the self-proclaimed president, including ministers, former presidential candidate Carlos Mesa, Santa Cruz Civic Committee Chairman Luis Fernando Camacho, and military and police authorities at the time of the coup d’état against Evo Morales.

The 26-page document denounces deaths (more than 35), gun-shot wounds, and multiple violations of the people’s rights due to the actions by law-enforcement forces under the command of the coup leaders.
