Juan Miguel Rivero Rojas was taken off the FIFA list at the end of 2008. By then he had been an international referee for a year.
He had been in the professional league only one year and his name appeared on the FIFA list after he had taken charge of only 4 matches.
Of course the president of the referee committee (Zambrano), who happens to be from the same province as Rivero, was accused of cronyism.
Then in 2009, Bolivia lost a spot in the FIFA panel and went back to 6 referees. Rivero failed the fitness test and since a lot of dissent was heard (Rivera had no experience, he didn't do well internationally) other refs got in and Rivero was out.
