RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - On Friday, the Bolivian interim government lodged a complaint with the Public Prosecutor's Office against former President Evo Morales for sedition (rebellion) and terrorism, due to an alleged call by the indigenous leader - exiled to Mexico - to besiege La Paz with blockades.
The audio recording, in which the former president is supposedly heard speaking with rural leader Faustino Yucra, was released on Wednesday by the incumbent Interior Minister, Arturo Murillo. "We are asking for the maximum penalty for sedition and terrorism," Murillo said as he was leaving the Public Prosecutor's Office.
