THE family of an Argentinian photojournalist held as a political prisoner by Bolivia’s coup administration fear for his life.
Facundo Morales has been held in “preventative detention” since November 2019 for allegedly participating in the blocking of a bridge.
He was arrested following the overthrow of democratically elected President Evo Morales by US-backed far-right forces. Coup administration leader Jeanine Anez subsequently led a brutal crackdown and massacre against indigenous Bolivians.
Mr Morales, who was working for a magazine at the time, is in poor health suffering kidney failure.
His father, Hugo Morales, explained that when he travelled to Bolivia he was also detained for 24 hours and was told to leave the country or be “massacred.”
He sent a desperate appeal to Argentinian President Alberto Fernandez pleading for him to intervene in his son’s case and bring him home.
“I respectfully ask you to initiate some action to repatriate my son, unjustly imprisoned in an arbitrary cause, which is politically motivated and has no evidence against him,” a letter said.
