Paraguayan authority impeaches MP Galeano

Asuncion, May 25 (Prensa Latina) Paraguayan judge Gustavo Amarilla confirmed the beginning of a trial for alleged money laundering and criminal association against legislator Erico Galeano as of this Thursday, the day the Electoral Justice proclaimed him senator-elect. The authority stated to the ABC Color newspaper that the trial ratification of the accused, until now a member of the Chamber of Deputies, is possible according to the Law because that instance on Thursday notified against him a deprivation of special rights, which was long debated by the public opinion.

Amarilla, criminal judge of Guarantees, considered that the Court is authorized in this circumstance to initiate the process against Galeano despite the decision of the Upper Court of Electoral Justice (TSJE) to officially validate him as senator by vote in the general elections of April 30.

The judge discredited the concept of ‘double immunity’ (as lawmaker and senator-elect) which Galeano, legislator for the ruling National Republican Association-Colorado Party (ANR-PC , having won the April elections, on Wednesday claimed in a press conference.

The Public Prosecutor’s Office is requesting, in addition to Galeano’s preventive imprisonment, the freezing or blocking of his accounts in financial entities, as well as the prohibition of buying and selling goods in his name.
