Argentine lawyer Laura Marcela Casuso, 54, who defended Brazilian drug dealer Jarvis Chimenes Pavo, was shot dead on Monday in Pedro Juan Caballero, on the Paraguay border with Brazil. According to the Paraguayan police, death is linked to the war between Brazilian traffic control units in the region.
Laura was also in the defense of Marcelo Fernando Pinheiro Veiga, Marcelo Piloto, linked to the Rio Comando Comando Vermelho and captured in Paraguay in December 2017.
The lawyer was hit by eight 9mm pistols when he left the city assembly meeting to answer a phone call. She was ambushed while she was ready to board the Range Rover SUV with a Brazilian registration plate from the city of Santana de Parnaiba.
Laura was taken to the hospital, passed the surgery, but she could not resist. According to Public Security Secretary Pedro Juan Caballero, Teofila Gimenez, suspects are murderers of Brazilians. The crime occurred 400 meters from the border line, and the gunmen were at Toiota Hilluk, who had been stolen in Brazil.
One hypothesis is that a lawyer killed one of her clients. The Red Command recently issued a video threat to kill Paraguay general prosecutor Sandra Kyinosez in response to the retaliation of her leader, Marseleta Pilot, who was imprisoned in December last December. An earlier trader said he paid to receive protection from a senior officer of the National Police of Paraguay, General Director of Criminal Investigations Alberto Canete. The Commissioner dismissed the indictment.
It was a lawyer who organized a press conference in which the Marseille Piloto trader from Rio de Janeiro said that he paid the volleyball to the officials of the National Police of Paraguay. He considered the Red Command strategist, who was responsible for the drugs and weapons, Pilot was sentenced to 26 years in prison by the Rio de Janeiro Justice and requested his extradition to Brazil.
Paraguayan police found a car bomb
At a news conference earlier this month, a Bulgarian merchant also assumed the crimes he committed in Paraguay, a strategy that would not be extradited, as he would have to answer the crimes to the Paraguay judicial system. On October 4, with the help of the Brazilian PF, Paraguayan police arrested five traffickers who planned to rescue the "Pilot". A few weeks later, another rescue plan with the use of auto bombs prompted the prosecution to declare a "terrorist" prisoner.
In return, Jarvis Paul was called by the Brazilian police as one of the largest cocaine suppliers in Brazil. Arrested in Paraguay, he was extradited to Brazil in December 2017 and served 17 years and 8 months in the federal Mossoro prison (RN). Laura, an Argentine lawyer, spoke fluently Portuguese and used a trip to Brazil.
She would also act in the defense of the drug dealer Elton Leonel Rumic that Silva, a 34-year-old Gala, was arrested in March this year in Rio de Janeiro with fake documents.
The region has been intensively discussed since 2016
Peacock and Gala are suspected of participating in an attack that killed megatraffant Jorge Rafaat Toumani in Pedro Juan Caballero in June 2016, which triggered a border war. Previously regarded as "untouchable," the drug king was shot by an automatic 50-point automatic pistol that damaged his armored Hammer.
At least 50 deaths in the last two years are attributed to the rivalry between Brazilian factions for border control. On one day, October 17, five people allegedly associated with international trafficking were killed by Pedro Juan Caballero and Brazilian Ponta Pora. One of the victims, Brazilian pilot Mauro Alberto Parreira Espindola, 58, worked for the drug dealer from Luxor Fernando da Costa, Fernandinho Beira-Mar, who started in jail in Mossor.
