Former Defense Minister Fernando López will return to Bolivia “when things improve”, as reported on Thursday by his lawyer in La Paz, Ariel Mendez. The jurist assured that he does not know the whereabouts of the ex-authority, but guaranteed that he will be brought to justice when the necessary guarantees exist.

“The rebellion may come, but the defense has not been quartered. When things improve and it is proven that my client has not acted in bad faith, has not participated in the crimes attributed to him, he will be present with the corresponding guarantees, because he, according to what has been demonstrated, has acted within the strictly legal framework, “said the lawyer.

The legal representative explained that “Totally unknown” where the former owner is, revealing that he communicates with him through the intermediation of a law firm that exists in Santa Cruz. In addition, he emphasized that, if he knew his whereabouts, he would not say so either, for security reasons.

“The details I must know, but I must not know, and Even if I knew, I would not say the place where my client is located, you know, for personal safety and because of the legal insecurity that exists in the country, “he added in an interview with Unitel.

Data from the Bolivian Police detail that López, along with former Minister Arturo Murillo, left the country on November 5, by land, through Puerto Suárez towards Corumbá, and that the former Defense authority is in San Pablo.
