Domenico Giani, chief of the Gendarmerie Corps of the Vatican State, received the same honor. He rarely speaks in public, but he made an exception this time to thank and congratulate the Paraguayan security forces.

The President of the Episcopal Conference of Paraguay and Archbishop of Asunción, Edmundo Valenzuela, also thanked the honorees in the name of Catholics in Paraguay.
