Aguilera’s case on Day of the Imprisoned Writer

Banner created by the Paraguayan Centre in support of Nelson Aguilera’s case on the 33rd Day of the Imprisoned Writer, 15 November 2014. The image used on the banner shows members of the Centre with their names listed from left to right below. In 2010 Nelson Aguilera, a member of the Paraguayan Centre’s Board, was accused of plagarism in his novel Karumbita: La patriota (Alfaguara Infantil, 2010) by the writer María Eugenia Garay. Although an independent panel of writers deemed the novel to contain no plagarism, Aguilera was sentenced to two years and six months in prison in November 2013.
