FORMER Bolivian president Evo Morales has demanded justice for those killed in the Senkata massacre, as the victims were declared heroes at a rally held yesterday to mark the first anniversary of the attack.
Mr Morales demanded that those responsible for the killing of ten indigenous Bolivians in the city of El Alto last year are brought to justice.
He said there could be no impunity, with self-proclaimed interim president Jeanine Anez exposed by congress as having given the order for the military operation.
“The Bolivian justice system – by its initiative, by its commitment to life – must move forward with the investigation and find those responsible,” he said.
President Luis Arce has ordered an investigation into the killings, which took place in the Senkata district of El Alto in the aftermath of the Washington-backed coup which ousted Mr Morales.
Similar atrocities occurred in the capital La Paz and in the city of Cochabamba after Mr Morales was forced out of office when the coup administration moved against indigenous protesters.
Former coup minister Arturo Murillo was reported to have fled the country in a bid to evade justice after the Movement Towards Socialism swept to power in last month’s presidential and congressional elections.
