"I gave the order at 6:00 [10:00 GMT on Wednesday] to Interpol to activate the international order [against Morales]", Bolivian Interior Minister Murillo said during a press conference on Wednesday, as quoted by the state Agencia Boliviana de Informacion.
He added that it was important for Morales be held to account for his actions in his own country.
Late last year, Bolivia experienced a change in leadership following mass protests against the results of the October general election. Morales stepped down as president on November 10 and fled to Mexico. Most of Bolivia’s senior officials resigned in his wake. This resulted in the senate's second vice speaker, opposition lawmaker Jeanine Anez, declaring herself interim president. Morales has characterized the situation as a coup.
