The governor of the state of Santa Cruz was arrested on Wednesday on the basis of an arrest warrant, the attorney general said. The right-wing politician is accused of playing an important role in the protests against the then head of state Evo Morales in 2019. Morales eventually had to resign, the current left-wing government sees the protests at the time as a coup d’état.

The government of the economically strong state of Santa Cruz described the arrest of its governor as a kidnapping. The 43-year-old was arrested during an irregular police operation and taken to an unknown location, the provincial government said. She held President Luis Arce responsible for Camacho’s security.
