The president of Paraguay, Mario Abdo Benítez, assured this Thursday that his country will deepen the investigation it has opened into the entry in May of a Venezuelan plane held by the authorities in Argentina.

“Everything is being investigated through the Ministry of the Interior and we are going to deepen that investigation,” Abdo Benítez told reporters after attending a ceremony in Asunción in honor of the Presidential Escort Regiment.

The president said that the decision was made to “make some changes” at the Guaraní airport, which serves the town of Ciudad del Este (southeast), where the aircraft landed at the Buenos Aires air terminal.

In addition, the changes cover the National Directorate of Civil Aeronautics (Dinac), which regulates and monitors aviation in the country, as well as Migrations.

Paraguay was “the one that notified all the intelligence agencies”

“In all places we are making corresponding summaries,” said the president, without going into details.

In this context, he confirmed that it was Paraguay “that notified all the intelligence agencies in the region” about the aircraft sanctioned by the United States.

consulted about the separated civil servantsthe director of airports of Dinac, Douglas Cubilla, informed the ABC Cardinal radio station that so far there are three people who have been separated from their positions as a result of the case of the ship.

The plane, which transported a load of cigarettes from Paraguayan territory to Aruba, remained between May 13 and 16 in the country with a crew of 7 Iranians and 11 Venezuelans.

The director of Migrations, María de los Ángeles Arriola, told that station that two officials from that entity explained their actions in the crew’s entry process.

The official clarified that there was no “alert” on the crew members that could prevent their entry.

“A good procedure was carried out and it was done in accordance with the procedures manual of an immigration inspector,” said Arriola, who pointed out that 18 crew members entered and left “at the same time.”

However, he admitted that there was a discrepancy in the number of entry and exit of the flight, due to a drop in the connection, but stated that the official in charge of the procedure recorded the inconsistency in a written record.
