Bolivia's Decolonization Deputy Minister Pelagio Condori Monday filed a complaint against 26 police officers who incited a riot during the political turmoil experienced in the country in November 2019.
The officers are accused of dishonoring national symbols and the institution, instigating strikes as a measure of pressure, and committing physical aggression.
According to their disciplinary regime, police officers are prohibited from formulating collective petitions that are outside the law and making public ostentation of political militancy in their units.
"That year, the entire population witnessed the active participation of police officers in social conflicts, breaking the constitutional order, risking the country's internal peace and security," Condori said.
