The deposed constitutional president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, expressed himself on Wednesday about the arrest warrant issued against him and said that “14 years after our revolution, the best gift I receive from the de facto government is an unjust, illegal and unconstitutional arrest warrant.”
Morales said from Buenos Aires, Argentina using his twitter account, that he is not afraid of this measure and that as long as he has life, he will continue leading with greater strength in the political and ideological struggle for a free and sovereign Bolivia.
A 14 años de nuestra revolución, el "mejor regalo" que recibo del gobierno de facto es una orden de aprehensión, injusta, ilegal e inconstitucional. No me asusta, mientras tenga vida seguiré con más fuerza en la lucha política e ideológica por una #Bolivia libre y soberana pic.twitter.com/B6rSHVFeaa

Hours before, he wrote about the fourteenth anniversary of the Bolivian revolution: “Today marks the 14th anniversary of the beginning of the democratic and cultural revolution. In this uprising the colonial state was transformed; from the communal struggle we passed to the electoral victory”.

This Wednesday, at the request of Jeanine Áñez, who proclaimed herself the interim president of Bolivia, once the armed forces forced Evo Morales to resign, the Bolivian Prosecutor issued an arrest warrant against him and accused him of alleged crimes of “sedition and terrorism”.
Jorge Arreaza: Another case of lawfare against leftist leaders
On Wednesday, the Foreign Minister of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, denounced the judicialization of the president of Bolivia Evo Morales – after the coup d’etat consummated on November 10 – as a new Lawfare strategy (warfare via the courts) of the Bolivian right.
Con este tipo de decisiones arbitrarias, la oligarquía golpista boliviana demuestra el miedo que le tiene al Presidente @evoespueblo. Ante la carencia de apoyo popular, la derecha fascista opta por la judicialización de la política. Este es un caso descarado de #Lawfare. https://t.co/CxqEm2zH0y

After the judiciary of that country issued an arrest warrant against Morales, through his Twitter account, the Venezuelan Foreign Minister indicated that the intention of the Bolivian right wing is to get Morales out of play politically because they fear him.
