Bolivia’s interim government has accused former President Evo Morales of terrorism and sedition over his alleged role in fomenting unrest in the country.
Mr Morales organised roadblocks that prevented food from entering cities, Interior Minister Arturo Murillo said.
At a press conference on Friday, Mr Murillo said a criminal complaint – based on a purported audio recording of Mr Morales from Mexico – had been filed with prosecutors.
The left-wing politician from Bolivia’s indigenous community fled to Mexico after the army urged him to quit.
Violent protests have crippled parts of the country since his resignation, which Mr Morales and his supporters have characterised as a military coup.
