Another official from the Martinelli era (Martinelli was President 2009-14) is facing trial. Federico Suárez, former head of the Ministry of Public Works (MOP), is one of 9 people against whom criminal proceedings have been begun.

Meanwhile, last night was a noisy night, or at least the early evening was, as a neighbour hosted a party for the CD political party. Any party or meeting here seems to involve unnecessarily loud music but, just as one was getting used to the party, a diablo rojo (a former US school bus that used to be the main form of public transport here, and a few of which still exist) festooned with party flags arrived, adding its own excessive noise…. Of course, what I should have done was gone over and joined in. The primaries are coming, and the Presidential election is next year.
