      LA PAZ, June 10 (Reuters) – A Bolivian court found former President Jeanine Anez guilty on Friday of orchestrating a coup that brought her to power during a 2019 political crisis.

      She was sentenced to 10 years in prison. An former military commander and ex-police general were also convicted.

      Anez, 54, was convicted of making “decisions contrary to the constitution” and of “dereliction of duty.”

      The prosecution said Anez, then a right-wing senator, violated norms that guarantee the constitutional and democratic order after Bolivia’s 2019 presidential elections.
