Paraguayan army accused of having executed Argentine girls linked to the EPP | The family presented to the UN the testimony of two witnesses who survived the military operation
Tamara Anahí, 14, and Tania, 19, survived two operations by the Armed Forces against the Paraguayan People’s Army (EPP). After living an odyssey in the mountains, they arrived in Argentina. Human Rights Organizations in Argentina country are also asking for the appearance of another minor who is still missing.

Lilian Mariana and María del Carmen Villalba were found dead after a military operation on September 2, 2020 in Paraguay. The two Argentine girls who were presented as “killed in combat” by the Paraguayan army last September were allegedly detained alive and executed by the military of that country. This was stated by relatives of the victims after presenting to the United Nations the testimony of two people who managed to survive the operation of the Joint Task Force (JTF), which belongs to the army, against the insurgent group Paraguayan People’s Army (EPP).

The stories belong to the cousins of dead children 14-year-old Tamara Anahí and 19-year-old Tania . In turn, the Argentine Lawyers’ Union claimed in a press conference for the whereabouts of Carmen Elizabeth, another minor who remains missing after a subsequent FTC operation against the EPP. In parallel, the Union reported that the Argentine Foreign Ministry asked the government of Mario Abdo Benítez for the minor to appear. In addition, he again requested that the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team (EAAF) be allowed to enter to clarify the causes of death of the two Argentine minors.
