Police's Public Corruption Division head Luis Guarachi confirmed to journalists in La Paz the warrant had been issued after Interior Minister Arturo Murillo tweeted a picture of the arrest warrant, adding: "FYI Senor [Morales]."
The legal document, which was signed by La Paz prosecutors, instructs to "apprehend and lead Mr. Juan Evo Morales Ayma, before the prosecutor's offices."
The Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) leader is paradoxically accused of "promoting violent clashes" that left 35 dead and resulted in his resignation.
Nevertheless, the MAS activists and supporters are denouncing this measure against their leader as a lawless attempt to prevent him from returning to his country in the future.
Morales was forced to leave his office on Nov. 10 when the Organization of American States (OAS) mission report questioned the results of the presidential elections, which pave the way to a coup d'etat led by fundamentalist sectors of the Bolivian right.
Currently, the Socialist leader resides in Argentina with political refugee status.
