The black market dealer was arrested Wednesday night at his mother-in-law’s home where he spent Christmas as a family in the luxurious Parana Country Club condominium in Paraguay
Investigated by Car Wash, 59-year-old Bruno Farina was arrested in Paraguay by Interpol, the Paraguayan Interior Ministry said. He should be expelled this Thursday (27) from Paraguayan territory, according to the country’s authorities. The Paraguayan Justice has just determined the extradition of fugitive Bruno Farina.
The black market dealer was arrested Wednesday night at his mother-in-law’s house, where he spent Christmas as a family in the luxurious Paraná Country Club condominium in Hernandarias, near Ciudad del Este, in Paraguay. He was taken to Asunción and submitted to a hearing in the Paraguayan criminal court.
Manuel Doldán Breuer, Paraguay’s international affairs prosecutor, told the R7 that Bruno Farina opted for voluntary or simplified extradition during the hearing that ended a few minutes ago in the country’s capital.
Under the Multilateral Treaty of Mercosur, prisoners subject to extradition should be consulted about their willingness to be extradited or to remain in the country where they were arrested. If it manifests itself according to the departure of the country, the extradition is considered voluntary and occurs a few days or even hours after the issuance of the sentence.
This was the case with Farina, who opted for voluntary departure.
If this did not occur, a lawsuit could be initiated that could take up to three years.
At this point, the prosecutor is providing the documentation to speed up the extradition process that may occur at any time.
