Supporting Nelson Aguilera

Photograph of members from the Paraguayan Centre gathered to support Nelson Aguilera, a member of the Centre’s Board, who was accused of plagarism in his novel Karumbita: La patriota (Alfaguara Infantil, 2010) by the writer María Eugenia Garay. Aguilera can be seen standing near the centre of the group, holding the sign. 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.
