Interview with President Fernando Lugo


On my recent trip to Paraguay, right after the coup d’etat, which removed President Fernando Lugo from power, I was able to interview people of all kinds of types in relation to what happened. One of the interviews that most interest was shown for abroad was that with Fernando Lugo himself.

The interview, which I have posted below, was published in slightly different versions in:
