Jurists remove Teresa Martinez’s prosecutorial authority

The Trial Jury for Magistrates has resolved to impeach Paraguay’s human trafficking prosecutor Teresa Martinez. Judge Manuel Aguirre requested that Martinez be tried for libel, slander and insult.

The decision was made after Anastacio Gómez Romero had filed a complaint against Martinez before Judge Aguirre.

Martinez told ABC Digital that the Trial Jury for Magistrates had not notified her of the decision until 10 AM on Friday.

Martinez, "This is very serious. I will hire a lawyer and defend myself. I have to ask for a copy of the complaint. This is the first time in 30 years that I have received a complaint...”

Martinez said that her cases [active human trafficking prosecutions] are concluding. She said that she deeply regrets that the cases were not heard before the action against her was taken.
