The New York Times echoes the latest developments with the EPP


The publication in the prestigious US media highlights the series of inconveniences that unleashed after the death of two girls during the apparent clash between the Joint Task Force (JTF) and the Paraguayan People’s Army (EPP).

They also cite the kidnapping of former vice president Óscar Denis and his collaborator Adelio Mendoza, pointing out that it could be a revenge by the armed group after the death of the minors.

With the title of 2 murdered girls and former vice president who disappeared in the guerrilla conflict in Paraguay, the New York Times analyzes the scope of the latest operation of the Joint Task Force (JTF) and its international derivations.

The publication collects the testimonies of local authorities and relatives of the girls, as well as referring to international pronouncements derived from the situation.

It also analyzes and provides details on the kidnapping of Óscar Denis and his collaborator Adelio Mendoza, who were kidnapped by the EPP.

The US media also point out that the Paraguayan government promoted the military operation in which two girls died successfully, and then made an effort to save the situation.

Likewise, it is reported that the girls’ bodies were quickly buried and some evidence was burned by the authorities.

The publication signed by journalists Daniel Politi and Ernesto Londoño reports that a group of forensic doctors would have arrived in the country from Argentina to analyze the corpses of deceased minors.

The New York Times rates the EPP as one of the last remaining rebel groups in South America, which has had little international significance in its struggle to create a Communist state in Paraguay.
