Bolivia plans legal action against Obama

Sep 20 2013, 12:38pm CDT | by IANS

Santa Cruz (Bolivia), Sep 20 (IANS) Bolivia's President Evo Morales plans to take legal action against US President Barak Obama for "crimes against humanity", Iran's Press TV reported Friday.

Santa Cruz (Bolivia), Sep 20 — Bolivia's President Evo Morales plans to take legal action against US President Barak Obama for "crimes against humanity", Iran's Press TV reported Friday.

"I would like to announce that we are preparing a lawsuit against (US President) Barack Obama to condemn him for crimes against humanity," Morales announced at press conference here.

He also condemned Washington after it denied Venezuelan presidential jet entry into US airspace.

Morales described the American president as a "criminal" who willingly violates international law.

"The US cannot be allowed to continue with its policy of intimidation and blockading presidential flights," Morales stated.

He added that Bolivia intends to prepare legal action against the US president and file the lawsuit before the international court.

Morales has called an emergency meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) over the US action, which has been slammed by Venezuela as "an act of intimidation by north American imperialism."

The Bolivian president has implied that the CELAC members recall their ambassadors from Washington in an effort to convey a strong message to the Obama administration.

Morales wants member nations of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas to boycott the next meeting of the United Nations in New York.

Members of the alliance include Antigua and Barbuda, Cuba, Dominica, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Venezuela and Saint Lucia.

The anti-US measures called by the Bolivian president comes just months after Morales's presidential aircraft was denied entry into several Western European countries, forcing it to land in Austria.

The May 2013 incident was widely described as a US-led effort out of a false suspicion that American spy agency whistleblower Edward Snowden may be onboard the aircraft.

At the time Bolivia was among a few countries that offered political asylum to Snowden, a US fugitive and former contract employee of American spy agencies, CIA and NSA, who leaked documents showing massive US electronic spying operations around the globe, including its European and Latin American allies.

Several Latin American heads of state joined Bolivia to censure the illegal move by the European countries, including Italy, France and Spain, which led to their official apologies.
