The former commander of the Bolivian Air Force (FAB), Jorge Terceros Lara, and the former commander of the Bolivian Navy, Palmiro Jarjury Rada, were benefited with house arrest in the case called ‘Golpe of State I’.

“The substitute measure has been ordered for the preventive detention of both General Terceros and Admiral Jarjury. It has been a legal interpretation,” the lawyer for the former commanders, Eusebio Vera, told the Red Patria Nueva.

The decision was made at an appeal hearing held in a La Paz court.

Terceros and Jarjury were also prosecuted in the so-called case of alleged ‘Coup d’état’or II’, but they decided to admit their guilt and were sentenced in February 2022 to three years in prison. The Bolivian norm allows the figure of judicial pardon in this case of sentences.

“Within the case of supposed ‘Coup II’, my defendants have benefited from a conditional suspension of sentence, for which they have also already been benefited with freedom and this second process remained. In this case, through an appeal hearing (to pretrial detention), it has been obtained that both are benefited from house arrest, “explained the jurist.

According to a Bolivia TV report, both uniformed men will be transferred to Santa Cruz to comply with this substitute measure to prison detention.
