Bolivia: Pando’s Prefect under arrest

with one comment

Bolivian Army has arrested the Prefect of the Department of Pando, Leopoldo Fernández. He had been accused of the recent political violence which left at least 30 dead.

The capital of the departmen, Cobija, is now under the Army’s control.

Feernández had said that the Government wanted to arrest him and placed Pando under military control to prevent people “from knowing the truth” of the violent deeds committed last week.

More on Bolivian unrest:

After González’s arrest, the prefects from Santa Cruz, Rubén Costas, and the one from Tarija, Mario Cossío, signed a pre-agreement to open the negotiation with Evo Morales and central Government.

We have, on the other hand, to know if the prefects from Beni, Ernesto Suárez, and Chuquisaca, Savina Cuéllar, sign this pre-agreement or not. If this is the case, political dialogue in Bolivia will begin in Cochabamba on Thursday. It will be about all the subjects which have caused the confrontation between the Government and the oposition. Catholic Church, several European countries and several  inter-American international organizations will take part in it as mediators.
