La Paz Department Prosecutor Marco Cossio on Wednesday charged Retired General Luis Valverde of being responsible for the "Senkata massacre" which took place a week after the coup against President Evo Morales in 2019.
As a result of the military violence and gunshots from the facility, 10 people were killed and another 31 were injured.
