Publish or perish?

Pres. Horacio Cartes
As reported here, the Paraguayan Minister of National Defense is resisting Thursday's demand by the country's Senate that three laws governing military justice be published, calling it an effort to destabilize the country. And so this strange legal fight continues. The problem is not only embarrassment to President Horacio Cartes, but the fact that some number of past court-martial convictions will presumably have to be invalidated if publication in the Presidential Gazette was required for the laws to take effect.
