Paraguay ex-president to take paternity test

Paraguay's ex-president Fernando Lugo will have to undergo court-ordered DNA testing, after a judge ruled in favor of a woman who says he fathered her 11-year old son, AFP reports citing court officials.

Sources said the family court judge in Paraguay's Ciudad del Este has set March 7 as the date for the DNA test.

"I am very happy about the decision of the judge, after four years" of wrangling in court, said the child's mother Benigna Leguizamon.

"Finally, we are going to have DNA proof" that Lugo fathered her son Lucas Fernando, she added.

Lugo, a former Roman Catholic bishop, was ousted from Paraguay's presidency in June. He was impeached by the Senate just months before the end of his four-year term over his handling of a land dispute.

Leguizamon claims Lugo fathered the boy during his time as bishop of San Pedro state, where she worked as his house cleaner.

Defense lawyers had argued over the years that it was unconstitutional for the court to compel Lugo to take a DNA test.

Lugo has admitted to fathering two other children from different mothers, and there is at least one more woman in addition to Leguizamon who has claimed that he is the father of her child.
