We are aware of the statement made by the International Young Democrat Union about the political situation in Bolivia. We have not, however, seen the report mentioned in the statement.
The UK works with Bolivia on strengthening the rule of law and improving access to justice in the country. We urge Bolivia to ensure the autonomy of state institutions and to uphold international human rights standards during a period of political change, including by continued efforts to embed the new judicial system and reduce the time spent on remand for all prisoners. The UK will support Bolivia in this work, including through the EU, by helping to address socio-political conflict and improving human rights, rule of law and democracy and strengthening of the independence of the judicial system.
We work with UN representatives, including the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, the UN Development Programme and the UN High Commission for Refugees to monitor Bolivia’s adherence to the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process and implementation of UPR recommendations.
