President denounces mistreatment on Argentine delegation in Bolivia

Buenos Aires, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina) President Alberto Fernández today denounced the mistreatment of Argentine legislators who traveled to Bolivia as electoral observers and held the Jeanine Añez de facto government responsible.

'Argentine legislators were mistreated when they arrived in La Paz to fulfill their duties as observers of the elections next Sunday. It is the direct responsibility of the de facto government of Jeanine Añez to preserve the integrity of the Argentine delegation,' Fernandez underlined in a message posted on Twitter.

Deputy Leonardo Grosso announced in another message on Twitter that they were invited by the president of the Bolivian Senate, Eva Copa, to act as international observers in Sunday's elections. Upon arrival, we passed the Cochabamba Airport without any problem, but when we arrived in La Paz we were detained, he said.

'First day as observers of the elections, and they have just illegally retained national parliament member Fagioli. We came to ensure the holding of fair elections and within democratic frameworks. We hold the government of Añez responsible for our security, added the legislator.
