Overview

Dozens of former government officials, lawyers, judges and human rights defenders were accused of staging a coup in 2019 and charged with vague offences and the former interim president, Jeanine Áñez, was imprisoned. A report published by the Interdisciplinary Group of Independent Experts (GIEI) highlighted the justice system’s lack of independence and the need to repeal an amnesty decree facilitating impunity for human rights violations.

The country battled with a third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic and health workers denounced lack of pay and unsafe working conditions.
