Bolivia’s Public Minister has requested the detention of businessman and National Unity Party (UN) Leader Samuel Doria Medina. The charges are for breach of duties with Focas, to be explained in a public hearing on 3 November 2016. Focas, a loan system from the U.S. to Bolivia, was canceled and became a private foundation per request of the U.S. (La Prensa). Medina, along with nine other former politicians, diverted public funds from Focas for unauthorized use. The Prosecutor General presented a formal charge against the accused on 13 October 2016 (La Razon).
