They denounce “cruel” and “inhuman” treatment against Añez

The Legal Office for Women, a Non-Governmental Organization that for more than 50 years has worked in the defense of women, denounced this Sunday “serious abuses” and “illegal actions” in the apprehension of former President Jeanine Añez, who is in preventive detention in the Miraflores women’s prison.

It mentions at least six irregularities in the treatment that the former head of state received and receives and then concludes that “the acts described constitute torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment recognized as such and prohibited by the Political Constitution of the State, the Universal Declaration of Rights Human Rights, the United Nations Convention against Torture, the American Convention on Human Rights and the Convention to Prevent, Punish and Eradicate Violence against Women.”

Among the irregularities, refers to the search of her home and the apprehension of her late at night “through the deployment of an impressive police apparatus headed by high authorities of the State, without having any judicial order.”

Also observes the immediate transfer of her to La Paz without allowing her to prepare for the change in climate and altitude, the preventive detention imposed on her arguing that she does not have a husband or family, and the denial of care in a medical center.

Faced with this situation, it demands from the authorities of the Executive Branch “the immediate cessation of illegal actions” and the Public Ministry “to proceed with objectivity and respect for human rights,” in addition to complying with the Political Constitution of the State and international treaties of human rights.

Denuncian «trato cruel» e «inhumano» contra Añez

La Oficina Jurídica para la Mujer, una Organización No Gubernamental que desde hace más de 50 años trabaja en la defensa de las mujeres, denunció este domingo “graves atropellos” y “acciones ilegales” en la aprehensión de la expresidenta Jeanine Añez, quien guarda detención preventiva en la cárcel de mujeres de Miraflores.

Menciona al menos seis irregularidades en el tratamiento que recibió y recibe la exjefa de Estado y luego concluye que “los actos descritos constituyen tortura, trato cruel, inhumano y degradante reconocidos como tales y prohibidos por la Constitución Política del Estado, la Declaración Universal de Derechos Humanos, la Convención contra la Tortura de Naciones Unidas, la Convención Americana sobre Derechos Humanos y la Convención para Prevenir, Sancionar y Erradicar la Violencia contra las Mujeres”.

Entre las irregularidades refiere el allanamiento de su domicilio y su aprehensión a altas horas de la noche “mediante el despliegue de un impresionante aparato policial encabezado por altas autoridades del Estado, sin contar con orden judicial alguna”.

También observa su inmediato traslado a La Paz sin permitirle que se prepare para el cambio de clima y de altura, la detención preventiva impuesta argumentando que no tiene marido ni familia y la negación de atención en un centro médico.

Ante esta situación, exige a las autoridades del Órgano Ejecutivo “la inmediata cesación de las acciones ilegales” y al Ministerio Público “proceder con objetividad y respeto de los derechos humanos”, además de cumplir con la Constitución Política del Estado y los tratados internacionales de derechos humanos.
