Daughter of missing former Paraguay vicepresident considers him dead

Asuncion, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) Beatriz Denis, daughter of the former Paraguayan vice president Oscar Denis, kidnapped in 2020 according to official sources by the self-styled Paraguayan People's Army (EPP), defends a version that he was killed by that irregular group.

There is a strong hypothesis that he was shot by that organization after kidnapping him on September 9 of that year, the woman declared in a press conference, and demanded the Government to confirm or discard that theory, ABC Color reports on Wednesday.

“We have the sad conviction that our father was the victim of a shooting by the EPP, approximately 10 days after the kidnapping,” the daughter of the former vice president, whose disappearance was the subject of numerous investigations during the last four years, said according to the newspaper.

“We ask those in charge of the prosecutorial investigation to conduct their investigation into this hypothesis until it is confirmed or ruled out. We demand that the government stand up to the EPP,” Beatriz Denis added to journalists.

The daughter of the disappeared former vice president also questioned the Executive for keeping a prisoner allegedly founder of the guerrilla group, Carmen Villalba, “enjoying privileges in the Buen Pastor women’s prison, where she is being held”, ABC Color reported.
