Jeanine Anez, former president of Bolivia who has been serving jail time has reportedly been in a less critical condition after she attempted taking her life on realizing that prosecutors were alleging her of the killings of protesters in 2019.
Her daughter, Carolina Ribera reported that her 54-year-old mother has been suffering from depression, and it was one of the major reasons the woman wanted to end her life.
Director of prisons, Juan Limpias, affirmed that she was in no critical condition any longer and that she is made to be with her family in the penitentiary since they felt the presence of her family would help her mental health.
Earlier, Bolivian officials disclosed that the ex-president tried harming herself and mostly got off with scratches.
The opposition party feels the government was not treating Anez right while they demanded her release; the family of the ex-president reported that the 54-year-old needed to be transferred to a hospital where she would be properly treated.
The resignation of Evo Morales in 2019 ushered Anez into interim power in November since she was the senior official in parliament at the time.
The president before her had fled the country after weeks of protest against his election for an illegal 4th term.
Many have accused her of entry of a coup plot and situations got worse when about twenty-two protesters died.
Attorney General Juan Lanchipa had announced the charges against Anez on Friday stating that the death of protesters was tagged genocide because of the conditions surrounding how they died.
The opposition party is accusing the current president of being unfair towards the former president as the judicial and electoral bodies give their allegiance to him.
