Diplomacy And Divas: Did An Argentine Pop Star Steal Paraguayan Jewels?

Don't cry for her, Moria Casán...or the $85,000 diamond and sapphire set

Diplomacy And Divas: Did An Argentine Pop Star Steal Paraguayan Jewels?

BUENOS AIRES/ASUNCION - Argentine actress and pop star Moria Casán is still in trouble for supposedly stealing a sapphire and diamond necklace and earring set worth around $85,000. Paraguayan officials have issued an international arrest warrant for Casán, her manager and her assistant.

Her lawyers have requested that she be exempt from preventative incarceration, and have also requested that she be allowed to make all of her court appearances from Argentina, saying that they do not trust that she will be treated fairly in Paraguay.

The actress had borrowed the necklace for a show in Paraguay on July 27. She was supposed to return the necklace after the show, but the jeweler who owns the necklace says that she neither returned the necklace nor contacted him in any way.

Footage from a surveillance camera at the event shows several people entering Casán’s dressing room, where she says the necklace and earrings were stolen from. They include the Paraguayan model Larissa Riquelme and a Paraguayan politician, both of whom have been called in for questioning.

Meanwhile, Casán’s manager, who was also shown on the surveillance video, has disappeared. His lawyer has not seen him since Thursday, and says he does not know his location, although there is no evidence that he has left Argentina.

A Brief History Of Patriarchy — And How To Topple It

Many people assume the patriarchy has always been there, but how did it really originate? History shows us that there can be another way.

The patriarchy, having been somewhat in retreat in parts of the world, is back in our faces. In Afghanistan, the Taliban once again prowl the streets more concerned with keeping women at home and in strict dress code than with the impending collapse of the country into famine.

And on another continent, parts of the U.S. are legislating to ensure that women can no longer have a legal abortion. In both cases, lurking patriarchal beliefs were allowed to reemerge when political leadership failed. We have an eerie feeling of travelling back through time. But how long has patriarchy dominated our societies?

Central to the tragic absurdity of this war is the question of language. Vladimir Putin has repeated that protecting ethnic Russians and the Russian-speaking populations of Ukraine was a driving motivation for his invasion.

Yet one month on, a quick look at the map shows that many of the worst-hit cities are those where Russian is the predominant language: Kharkiv, Odesa, Kherson.
