Publication standoff continues in Paraguay

Pres. Horacio Cartes
The test of wills between President Horacio Cartes and the Paraguayan Senate continues over the [non] publication of three military justice laws enacted in 1980. The government is standing firm, but the Senate hasn't given up. Possible next step: create a Legislative Gazette that would publish all laws enacted by the Congress. Family members of military personnel are also up in arms about the situation. There are 43 military prisoners at the moment. Details here in Spanish.
