In Bolivia, one of the poorest countries in Central America, citizens have the right to express their displeasure with the actions of the authorities by whipping, handcuffing, etc., as stipulated in the Constitution.
A group of citizens invited Javier Delgado, the mayor of Buenaventura, to participate in the inauguration ceremony of the recently built new development.
When he came to participate in the opening of the bridge, he was greeted by a completely different situation. The mob seized Delgado, chained his legs to wooden shackles, and punished him in public for about 40 minutes.
Citizens accused him of not fulfilling his promises and running away from responsibility, and collected signatures to impeach him.
Delgado, who had been shackled twice in the past, followed the instructions of the people without protesting this time.
However, he said that there was no violation of the law or failure to fulfill his promises, on the contrary, he believed that this happened because the citizens were brainwashed by his opponents.
Some researchers and experts accuse that such methods of punishment with the nature of violence are not suitable for modern developed society, the problem should be solved through law courts, and it is a punishment that has gone back to the middle ages.
