US CHARGES EX-BOLIVIAN MINISTER WITH BRIBERY, MONEY LAUNDERING

On 26 May, Al Jazeera reported that the US accuses former Bolivian Interior Minister Arturo Murillo of receiving bribes from a US company and individuals to secure a Bolivian government contract.  The US DoJ accused Murillo and his ex-chief of staff, Sergio Mendez, “of receiving bribes paid by a US company and individuals to secure a Bolivian government contract”.  3 US citizens were also charged in relation to the alleged bribery scheme, which took place between November 2019 and April 2020.  Murillo is also wanted in Bolivia on sedition charges for his role in President Anez’s interim administration.
