Tension in Bolivia: The third deadly victim

Tensions in Bolivia have hit maximum after a third person was killed in street violence that erupted during demonstrations against the controversial re-election of President Evo Morales.

Limbert Guzmán, a student, became the third death from the pro-government groups that seek to restrict citizens demonstrating and setting up road blocks. 

The 20-year-old man was pronounced brain-dead at a hospital in Cochabamba after suffering serious trauma.

At the same time, dozens of people were injured in confrontations between Morales's supporters and critics in La Paz and El Alto.

Yesterday was the most violent day with two other opposition demonstrators were shot dead in the eastern city of Montero.

Citizen protests erupted two weeks ago all over Bolivia, after Evo Morales inexplicably won an election riddled with scandal.

Brazilian Parliament has spurned Alberto Fernández

Brazil's Parliament rejected Argentina's President-elect Alberto Fernández for calling for the release of former Brazilian President Lula da Silva.

Luiz Philippe Braganza, leader of the initiative, said Fernández disrespected Brazil's justice department.

Braganza said that not only did Fernández dare to interfere in Brazil's internal affairs, but also endangered future relations between the two countries.

The Lower House Foreign Relations Committee, after hearing Luiz Philippe's allegations, approved the motion.

It should be noted that the Bolsonaro’s government will buy a total of 750,000 tons of duty-free wheat from the United States, instead of Argentina, because of the dispute with Alberto Fernandez. 

Director of Pediatrics convicted in Argentina

The former medical director of Garrahan Hospital, Argentina's main pediatric center, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for pedophilia.

Ricardo Russo had his medical license revoked for life after he was found  guilty of taking advantage of his position of power in the doctor-patient relationship.

Russo had hundreds of files on child abuse and sexual exploitation that he offered on the Internet, and even recorded photos and videos himself.

Prosecutor Daniela Dupuy added that among the files, they found videos showing hours and hours of babies and children brutally raped, over and over again.

During the trial, 38 witnesses and experts testified, 15 fewer than initially planned, as their testimony was considered unnecessary.

Chile supports small and medium enterprises affected by the wave of violence

The Chilean government launched a plan to support 6,800 small-to-medium-sized businesses affected by the wave of violence, vandalism, and destruction, that recently rocked the country.

President Sebastián Piñera announced a package that will include subsidies, faster payments, and more flexible taxes.

Under the slogan  ‘Let's raise your enterprise,” he will look for large companies to partner with smaller businesses for one to three months.

New facilities and guarantees will also be offered so that smaller businesses can recover lost revenue and return to normal as soon as possible.

Piñera, who had been silent for days, also demanded a clear and categorical condemnation of violence by everyone.
