La Paz - WikiLeaks revelations show that officials of the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Agency for International Development (USAID) carried out espionage tasks in Bolivia, Bolivian Justice Minister Nilda Copa said Monday.

'DEA agents and officials of USAID and several non-governmental organizations engaged in foul play, and now we know the details of what they were doing in Bolivia,' Copa said.

Amid a bitter dispute between Washington and La Paz over Bolivia's anti-drug
efforts that included the expulsion of US Ambassador Philip Goldberg, the government of Bolivian President Evo Morales expelled DEA and USAID officials from his country in 2008, alleging that they were spying and financing opposition groups.

'(The United States) do nothing for free, and the truth is emerging,' Copa said.
