Bolivian Prosecutors demand Doria Medina's arrest

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).
