FEATURING THOMAS BECKER – Bolivia’s former interim President Jeanine Añez has been arrested on charges of terrorism, sedition and conspiracy to commit a coup. Arrest warrants were issued for at least a dozen political figures involved in the 2019 ouster of former President Evo Morales, leader of the Movement Toward Socialism or MAS Party.

Just before her arrest Añez tweeted, “I denounce to Bolivia and the world that, in an act of abuse and political persecution, the MAS government has ordered my arrest. They accuse me of participating in a coup that never happened. I pray for Bolivia and all of its people.”
