UNASUR Reports on Bolivia Massacre
La Paz - The Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) presents Wednesday in this capital to Bolivian President Evo Morales the conclusions of investigations on the September 11 massacre of farmers occurred in the Pando department.

Although the official delivery will take place today in the Government Palace, the internal public opinion and the international community already know that the commission, appointed by the regional bloc to analyze the case, ratified the occurrence of a slaughter and demanded justice.

According to Argentinean lawyer and chief of inquiries, Rodolfo Mattarollo, local authorities like detained former prefect Leopoldo Fernandez participated in the crime against humanity that left over 18 dead and dozens of wounded and disappeared persons.

Along with the demand of legal actions against those involved in the case, the investigator slammed the inability of Bolivian justice to try authors of those crimes.

The UNASUR commission, made up of forensic scientists, ballistic experts and others, visited the Pando town of Porvenir and met with victims, witnesses and those involved.

Opposition radical sectors criticized UNASUR investigations, saying they favor the Bolivian government.
