European Parliament Condemns Martial Law in Bolivia

Strasbourg – Associated Press – The European Parliament approved a resolution condemning the martial law being enforced in Bolivia. This resolution asks the governments of the European Common Market not to recognize the coup-prone and dictatorial government of Bolivia and to suspend all of their assistance to that government. The European Parliament has also asked for the official recognition of the Baha’i sect (the unlawful Baha’i political sect) by the government of Iran.
