Follow up to Sanchez de Lozada's case

MABB is a registered TM.

The case against former president Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada (GSL) took a step back. The Supreme Court sent the Attorney General's formal arraignment back, calling it incomplete. The high court said the arraignment lacked the statements of the accused. Additionally, the court said that the accused were not read their rights properly. Finally, the court added that the office of the DA can fix "defects" in the arraignment.

So for now, the process continues as GSL's ministers, one by one, make their statements of innocence and the GA fixes the mistakes in the arraignment.
