About Bolivian Judicial Gap

The traditional absence of Judicial Power In Bolivia shows that today, like 30 years ago but facing a military dictatorship period, the Judicial Power and the Prosecutors´ Office are not able to defend the law and defend the people against the power, the real power. This situation belongs not only in the daily situation that people have to experiment in the court house with our usual improvised institutions.

Politicians and judges always show an awful discourse about their duties and their ethic behavior, this situation is related with the irrational criminal exercise every day. In comparison there are a lot of people and institutions that always finish unpunished. By the way the explanations based on real situations and investigations are not covered by the official discourse, and this official discourse has more attention in the press and the public opinion every day, frequently pressing to make another legal reforms.

But investigation is really difficult to do, the sources are not common and opinions, articles and papers are , one to the other, really far away. This is the main objective for bolivianjudicialgap, to gather judicial information about the Bolivian Judicial Power, trying to promote studies and knowledge about it. bolivanjudicialgap thinks that this is one of the first steps to know the problems and to discuss real public policies about justice in Bolivia.
