Carolina Ribera, daughter of the former interim president of Bolivia Jeanine Áñez, said Tuesday through her social networks that the government would have opened an investigation against her as a way of intimidating her.

"He persecutes me for internationally denouncing the humiliation committed against political prisoners and for defending human rights in my country. Investigate, I have nothing to hide," he wrote on his Twitter account.

CNN has asked the Bolivian Police and the Public Ministry for more information about this alleged investigation, but has not yet received a response.

However, the Minister of Justice, Iván Lima, told local media that there is no political persecution against Ribera and urged her to "go to the Prosecutor's Office and provide information and not victimize herself."

According to Ribera, the Public Ministry would have requested information from various institutions in Bolivia about her.


The state channel Bolivia TV reported that, according to a tax document, "financial data is being requested from 32 banking entities, possible records in the Plurinational Trade Registry Service (Seprec), National Taxes, the Authority for the Regulation and Supervision of Telecommunications and Transportation (ATT), the Financial System Supervision Authority (ASFI), Migration, Background in the Bolivian Police, among other entities (...) in the framework of an investigation for the alleged commission of crimes of legitimization of profits illicit”.

Bolivia TV does not identify which prosecutor's office is conducting that investigation.

CNN has not been able to verify the authenticity of this document.

CNN has asked the Prosecutor's Office for confirmation of the existence of this investigation, as well as what it consists of.

According to Bolivia TV, the Vice Minister of Communication, Gabriela Alcón, said that all citizens are subject to the same regulations and that investigations must be answered, and that there are guarantees of due process and independence of the powers of the State.

During the Áñez government, Ribera acted as a representative of the Social Management Unit of the Ministry of the Presidency.

For her part, the former interim president is accused of breach of duty for assuming the Presidency during the crisis of November 2019, in the case called "Coup d'état II".

In June 2022, she was sentenced to 10 years in prison in the "Coup d'état I" case, for allegedly taking part in a coup against then-President Evo Morales.

Áñez, who is in preventive detention, denies that there was a coup d'état and affirms that she assumed the Presidency as part of the succession mechanism provided for in the constitution.

She has also pleaded not guilty to all charges, saying it is political persecution.
