Bolivia and revalidation patents: can anyone help?

Can anyone help? A reader who practises patent law outside Latin America has written to IP Tango with the following question:

"We have something called a revalidation patent in Bolivia that is pending and some regular Bolivian cases that have been considered abandoned. The system there appears to be a little quirky.

Anyway, I am wondering if revalidations are still possible? Will the existing application be voided eventually as they will cancel the type of patent, etc.

It does not concord with TRIPS but Bolivia has not honoured the TRIPS Agreement in a meaningful sense.
I would be grateful for any knowledge or advice that your readers can share".
If you can be of any assistance, please email me here and I'll forward your comment, or post your response below.
