Featured Evo Morales introduces legal team to fight coup government's accusations

Buenos Aires, January 3 (RHC)-- The constitutionally-elected president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, introduced the team of professionals who will advise him on legal matters, and that could assume his defense regarding the legal accusations against him.

Lawyers Raúl Zaffaroni and Gustavo Ferreyra will integrate the team that will take on the legal role of defense and advice for Evo Morales to confront the de-facto government attacks that were imposed after the coup d'etat against the leader of the Movement to Socialism.

The legal team states that the current government has abandoned the world legal system by violating the elementary norms of international law by harassing embassies. Zaffaroni clarified that so far they will not handle any extradition request against the Bolivian president and that they only know of arrest warrants issued by prosecutors for the alleged crime of "sedition."
