Fagioli, is safe at the Argentine embassy in La Paz after being mistreated by Bolivian police.

Political actors denounced on social media the arrest of Fagioli and the mistreatment suffered by the delegation who was invited to observe the Bolivia's election.

"Argentinean legislators were mistreated when they arrived in La Paz to fulfill their tasks as observers of next Sunday's elections. It is the direct responsibility of the de coup-born regime's leader Jeanine Añez to preserve our delegation's integrity," president Alberto Fernandez tweeted.

"Argentina's government demands that the Jeanine Añez's coup-born regime take responsibility for the illegal detention of lawmaker Federico Fagioli, who traveled to Bolivia to observe the upcoming elections."
 

On Friday night, the Bolivian police held Fagioli at the air terminal, although he and his colleagues had passed through immigration controls in Cochabamba.
