Bolivian octogenarian Gary Prado Salmon is enjoying his newfound freedom after having been implicated in a terrorism case and spending a decade under house arrest, a period of confinement he says was revenge for his having captured Argentine-born Cuban revolutionary icon Ernesto "Che" Guevara more than five decades ago.

The current interim government's decision last month to no longer pursue that case was a "blow to the authoritarianism" of leftist ex-President Evo Morales, who resigned last year after his Oct. 20 election victory was marred by accusations of fraud and he lost the support of the military.(Morales and his supporters across Latin America and beyond term his ouster a coup).
