Paraguay’s Ex-President Ordered To Undergo Paternity Test

Former President of Paraguay, Fernando Lugo, has been ordered by a court to undergo a paternity test following accusations that he illegitimately fathered an 11-year old boy. Benigna Leguizamon alleges that Lugo is the biological father of her son. A court judge of Paraguay’s Cuidad del Este has ordered the former president to undergo a DNA test with a deadline set for March 7th.

Lequisamon claims that the affair between herself and Lugo occurred during the former president’s days as a Catholic bishop of San Pedro state where she was employed as a house cleaner. Leguizamon’s son is only one of two children Lugo has allegedly fathered. The former president has also admitted to fathering two other children from different mothers.

The judgment comes after a four year long battle between prosecutors and Lugo’s attorneys who have claimed that forcing the ex-president to undergo DNA testing is unconstitutional.

This is not the first time Lugo has been thrown into the international spotlight. In June of 2012, the former president was impeached following his poor handling of a land dispute which resulted in the deaths of 17 people.
