Santiago Pena spoke of the situation in the prisons, especially the overcrowding, which is expected to be improved with the approval of three new jails. He said that he had instructed his Ministers to check the progress made by these projects, especially the Minister for Public Works and Communications, Claudia Centurion.
“I requested that all ministers and in particular the Minister of Public Works check the current construction situation, as well as the equipment, so we can move forward,” said he during his trip to Encarnacion. Pena said that the overpopulation problem has existed for many years and that the new prisons were planned by the previous government, of which he served as Finance Minister.
The president said, “We know the problem with penitentiaries. Many years ago, when we decided to start studies on the design of new prisons we were aware that there was a huge overpopulation in Tacumbu. It was this that led us to shut down the entrance of people who are deprived of their liberty or prisoners.
He referred, on the other hand to the order issued last Friday by which the property project 916 (also known as Jardines De Remansito) was completely vetoed. He said: “It’s not surprising that I signed it yesterday. After analyzing its legal implications, we decided to declare the veto yesterday.”
President Aquino assured the nation that his government would continue to protect the national interests, in this instance in relation to the land that belongs to Paraguayan state.
He said, “There’s a huge problem, because land was taken from Paraguayan state in recent years. Some of these lands were stripped to allow small farmers to have access to land, but others weren’t.” We must act according to the law, he added, to protect the Paraguayan state.
