Paraguay - Judge issues court order to repress and arrest striking truck drivers

In January 2018, Judge Lici Sánchez sanctioned the appeal filed by the Ministry of Public Works and Communications (MOPC) and the National Department of Transport (Dinatran) to ensure freedom of movement across the country. Truck drivers acting in breach of the court decision were liable to arrest and imprisonment. The judge ordered, as an emergency precautionary measure, the removal from national roads of all obstacles, of any kind, that might hinder or obstruct the free movement of citizens, empowering the National Police to intervene to implement the order, in compliance with the constitutional mandate set out in Article 175 of the National Constitution.
