Condemning Washington’s intimidation tactics after it denied Venezuelan presidential jet entry into US airspace, Bolivia’s President Evo Morales plans to file legal action against the US president for crimes against humanity.
According to Russia Today, President Morales announced at a Thursday press conference in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz “I would like to announce that we are preparing a lawsuit against US President Barack Obama to condemn him for crimes against humanity.”
He further described the American president as a “criminal” who willingly violates international law.
Morales stated “The US cannot be allowed to continue with its policy of intimidation and blockading presidential flights.”
He added that Bolivia intends to prepare legal action against the US president and file the lawsuit at the International Court.
President Morales has called for an emergency meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) to confer about the US action, which has been slammed by Venezuela as “an act of intimidation by North American imperialism.”
Additionally, the Bolivian president has implied that the CELAC members should recall their ambassadors from Washington in an effort to convey a strong message to the Obama Administration.
