Colombia Qualifies as Irregular Lugo’s Removal in Paraguay

The Colombian government qualified as irregular the removal of the constitutional president of Paraguay, Fernando Lugo, while denying that there was a coup in that country.

In this regard, in a recent interview published in the newspaper El Tiempo, the Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin, said that the irregular nature of the proceedings against Lugo is evident as he couldn’t count on the necessary guarantees.

“We believe it cannot be said that it was a coup, but it is clear that there was no respect for the process, as President Lugo was not allowed to have a trial with guarantees,” she said.

Moreover, Holguin said her country shares the decision of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) to suspend Paraguay from that regional integration mechanism.

The minister said that Colombia’s ambassador in Paraguay will continue in consultation, but she qualified as good the relations between both nations.
