Publication controversy continues in Paraguay

Pres. Horacio Cartes
A retired colonel who previously served on the Paraguayan Military Supreme Court has expressed surprise that three laws from 1980 have not been published in the Official Gazette, as required by the Constitution. Col. (Ret) Claudio Balbuena Acosta says that if the Executive does not publish the laws, Congress or the president of the Senate can do so. Moreover, senior military officials might be in legal trouble themselves for imprisoning personnel illegally. Details here, in Spanish.
