14. Human Rights Foundation is a right wing front group.

Armando Valladares CIA organization linked to plot against Evo Morales

Jean-Guy Allard

THE Bolivian district attorneys office has identified Hugo Ach Melgar who, according to the AFP news agency, is Bolivias representative to the U.S. Human Rights Foundation (HRF), as providing the bulk of the funds for the terrorist gang foiled in Santa Cruz while plotting to assassinate President Evo Morales.

The HRF is a New York-based nongovernmental organization known for its activities of interference and CIA links. Its general secretary, Armando Valladares is a terrorist of Cuban origin. District Attorney Marcelo Sosa, who is leading the investigation in this case, identified Ach, alias "Superman," along with Alejandro Melgar, "El Lucas," as being involved in and funding the plot.

In a statement to a La Paz television station, Ach currently in the United States rejected those charges but confessed that he had met with the killers leader, Hungarian-Bolivian Eduardo Rzsa-Flores, on "four or five" occasions. The Rzsa-Flores terrorist group was dismantled in a Bolivian police operation a few weeks ago. Three of the mercenaries, among them the groups alleged leader, Eduardo Rzsa-Flores, died in a gun fight, while two others were arrested and are currently being detained in La Paz. The authorities subsequently captured two other conspirators, both members of the fascist organization Unin Juvenil Cruceista, which provided the group with weapons.
