The former Bolivian leader said on Twitter she had to serve four months “to await a trial for a ‘coup’ that never happened.”
Former Bolivian President Jeanine Anez said on Sunday she had been given a four-month pre-trial detention after she was arrested on charges linked to the ousting of her predecessor Evo Morales.
Morales claims he was the victim of a coup d’etat for which Anez was responsible.
Anez, who was arrested on Saturday on charges of terrorism, sedition and conspiracy, denies any wrongdoing.
After learning her fate from Judge Regina Santa Cruz in a virtual hearing, she tweeted: “They are sending me to detention for four months to await a trial for a ‘coup’ that never happened.”
