Suspected Argentine Drug Trafficker Appears before Paraguayan Court

ASUNCION Ė A suspected Argentine drug trafficker arrested over the weekend in Brazil, where he denied his identity, and transported under police custody to Asuncion, appeared before a Paraguayan court on Monday, Attorney Generalís Office spokesman Gustavo Fretes told EFE.

Ibar Perez Corradi, who is accused in Paraguay of forgery and making false identity papers, arrived at the Attorney Generalís Office with his wife, three Argentine attorneys and a Paraguayan lawyer, who advised him before the hearing, Fretes said.

Perez Corradi, a fugitive for the past three years, was convicted by a court in Argentina as the mastermind of the 2008 murders of Sebastian Forza, Damian Ferron and Leopoldo Bina, a crime apparently linked to the illicit trade in ephedrine.

In early June, reports put Perez Corradi in Paraguay, leading to a meeting between Paraguayan Interior Minister Francisco de Vargas and Argentine Security Minister Patricia Bullrich, who said they would work together to catch the fugitive.

The suspect was arrested Sunday in Foz de Iguazu, a Brazilian city on the border with Paraguay and Argentina, in a joint operation by the Brazilian Federal Police and the Paraguayan National Police, law enforcement officials told EFE.
