Gonzalo Sanchez de Losada
Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada y Sánchez de Bustamante (born July 1, 1930), familiarly known as "Goni", is a Bolivian politician, businessman, and former President of Bolivia. A lifelong member of the Movimiento Nacionalista Revolucionario (MNR), he is credited for using "shock therapy", the economic theory championed by then Harvard University economist Jeffrey Sachs. This measure was used by Bolivia in 1985 (when Sánchez de Lozada was Minister of Planning in the government of President Víctor Paz Estenssoro) to cut hyperinflation from an estimated 25,000% to a single digit within a period of 6 weeks. More broadly, he is credited with having engineered the restructuring of the Bolivian state and the dismantling the state-capitalist model that had prevailed in the country since the 1952 Revolution.
Sánchez de Lozada was twice elected President of Bolivia, both times on the MNR ticket. During his first term (1993–97), he initiated a series of landmark social, economic and constitutional reforms. Elected to a second term in 2002, he resigned and went into exile in the United States of America in October 2003 after violent protests related to the Bolivian gas conflict in which some 60 protesters, soldiers and policemen died. In March 2006, he resigned the leadership of the MNR. Bolivia has unsuccessfully been seeking his extradition from the US to stand trial for the events of 2003.

A Case for Extradition: Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada and Carlos Sanchez Berzain
Whether or not the United States should extradite former Bolivian president Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada and his former defense minister, Carlos Sanchez Berzain, to stand in a ‘Trial of Responsibility’ concerning intense civil unrest in 2003 which resulted in government-ordered suppression of civilian protestors, is an issue which is at once emotionally and politically charged. It is not simply an academic exercise due to the fact that a formal extradition request from the Bolivian government can be expected soon and civil suits already have been filed in U.

Diarios en Bicicleta (diariosenbici.blogspot.com): Bolivia presento los exhortos judiciales para extraditar a Gonzalo Sanchez de Losada
Diarios en BicicletaDe acuerdo a una carta a la que tuvo acceso la agencia española efe, el 19 de marzo de este año trece importantes ex miembros del gobierno de Estados Unidos instaron a la secretaria de Estado Condoleezza Rice para que intercediera con el fin de evitar que prospere el juicio por “genocidio” contra el ex Presidente de Bolivia, Gonzalo Sánchez de Losada. La misiva; que habría sido firmada por los ex Secretarios de Estado Adjuntos para Asuntos Latinoamericanos, Jeffrey Davidow, Otto Reich, Peter Romero, Alexander Watson y Roger Noriega; pretendía que Rice le pida a un juez federal norteamericano la desestimación de una demanda civil interpuesta contra el ex mandatario por familiares de los fallecidos durante la “Guerra del Gas” en Octubre del 2003.
