A Paraguayan judge Thursday ordered pre-trial detention for the former presidential candidate Efrain Alegre, who is under investigation for an alleged corruption scandal related to his 2018 election campaign.
According to Guarantees Judge Cynthia Lovera, the Authentic Radical Liberal Party (PLRA) leader failed to comply with the alternative measures to prison imposed on him 20 days ago.
"Alegre systematically refused to offer a bond of about US$22,000 to avoid his pre-trial detention," Lovera assured before ordering him to be held in custody at the Tacumbu National Penitentiary.
The former candidate assured that his arrest was articulated. "The real intentions of President Mario Abdo's government are to eliminate me from the Paraguayan political scenario," he said.
