Contest of wills between civilian and military courts in Bolivia

Página Siete reports that a Bolivian civilian court has again entered an order concerning the military pretrial detention of Jhonny Feliz Gil, a warrant officer who heads the association of warrant officers and sergeants. The civilian court's order requires the military court to comply with the requirements of the Code of Criminal Procedure for pretrial detention.

Postscript: The Appellate Chamber of the Military Supreme Court later refused for the fifth time to overturn Gil's pretrial detention on the theory that he might seek to influence witnesses.
