OHCHR Monitoring Ostreicher Case in Bolivia

Denis Racicot, United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Bolivia, said Wednesday that the agency is following up the case of American businessman Jacob Ostreicher and the web of corruption that was uncovered, according to the Jacob Ostreicher blog.

“Our main concern is addressed in this case (Ostreicher) which, of course, we are monitoring. We have made visits to the prosecution, the judge and also responsible judicial authorities of Santa Cruz, to start monitoring this work.”

According to official data, so far, 12 people accused of belonging to the network of corruption have been detained in the prison of Palmasola including former officials. Racicot explained that he “requested” access to the investigation notebook to assess the progress of the case and the depth of corruption allegations.
