The guerrillas of the Paraguayan People’s Army (EPP) released the chauffeur, kidnapped last week together with former Vice President Óscar Denis, as part of the work they had done in the last few hours to obtain the delivery of the two hostages, and the traces of that Territory of indigenous communities.
Driver Aurelio Mendoza was released on a country road near the farm where the kidnapping took place on August 9th. According to the ABC Color newspaper, the guerrillas had already awaited their delivery in the documents that were left at the venue on Friday.
Both Mendoza’s family and the authorities have confirmed that the young man is fine, despite being in a state of shock. Prosecutor Federico Delfino has told the media that “it is a very high level of stress” and has confirmed his transfer to a clinic in Concepción for testing.
“Our boss has not returned yet,” he complained shortly after his release on Monday when he arrived at the farm where the kidnapping took place. Mendoza is a member of the Pay Tavytera indigenous community.
