The President of the Bolivian Parliament, Eva Copa, announced this Wednesday the opening of proceedings for “economic damage” against the interim president Jeanine Áñez in connection with an unsecured loan to the legislature from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
“It is up to the Minister of Commerce and the President to initiate a case for economic damage to the country because they authorize these revenues,” Copa said in statements to Kawsachun Coca Station, which were collected on the Bolivian Senate’s official website.
“We are preparing all the documents because Bolivians cannot pay interest on a loan that we do not know where it has gone. It is in our country, but we do not know what they are spending it on,” added the President of the Plurinational Legislative Assembly added (TOP).
He stressed that the executive had violated the constitution by obtaining this loan without parliamentary approval, adding that “the transitional government had completely violated the constitution”.
