The president of Bolivia’s National Assembly has accused the country’s Aquinos, President Evo Morales and his wife, María Isabel, of having a history of corruption, and accused them of stealing money from public coffers in the name of their public services.
Speaking in a televised address on Sunday, Evo said the Aquinos have “taken money from the public, not from the people” by using the government’s budget to pay private businesses to rent space for their own private events.
“This has been a crime,” Evo added.
“They took money from people, not the people.
It is a crime.”
Aquino’s predecessor, Manuel González, has also accused the Aquinas of taking money from a public institution, as well as using it to pay for their private private business, such as the purchase of a yacht.
