During the extraordinary session of the Lower House, deputy Celeste Amarilla, elected senator in the last elections, took advantage of the space for speakers to try to tackle a new complaint against him.
“It seems to me that I have to, from now on, reflect, because I do not live alone. Yolanda Paredes, Paraguayan Cubas, I have no proof of what I said. Sorry to my source, I know my source is reliable, but I don’t have the proof and I won’t have it, which is why, ma’am Yolanda and Mr. Paraguayo Cubas, I withdraw my words, I apologize, if I have wronged your good name, your honor, your dignity “. Amarilla expressed.

It was alluding to the accusations he made during a television program, in which he stated that Paraguayo Cubas received money in exchange for promoting his candidacy and thus dividing the opposition.
In October 2020, Celeste Amarilla was sanctioned with a 60-day suspension, due to another accusation that she formulated, without having any evidence. On that occasion, he assured that many deputies bought his bank.
At the end of the elections, far from thanking those who voted for her and confirmed her in another parliamentary period, Amarilla repudiated those who elected Cubas.
The entrance Deputy retracts her statements and apologizes to Cubas and his wife was first published on newspaper TODAY.
