In this letter, Amnesty International urges all Honourable Deputies to refuse to sign the bilateral immunity agreement signed by the Government and the United States of America in May last year, since it violates obligations entered into by Bolivia under international law. This agreement grants absolute impunity from international prosecution to US nationals who are accused by the International Criminal Court (ICC) of committing genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes.
