Spanish term or phrase: ... EL SENOR AGENTE FISCAL EN LO PENA ...
There is very little context with this. It relates to a trade mark case in Paraguay.

My problem is with "LO PENA". Since the whole thing is written in upper case, I don't know whether it's a place name or refers to punishment, but it sounds very odd to have LO with PENA, a feminine noun.

English translation:A typo?
Explanation:
I think it should be: en lo penal. Because it can't be "en lo pena" at all, but "en lo penal" is definitely something in legal texts.

punishment


Explanation:
I think it is a punishment and has "lo" because the agent (male) is making the punishment or he is making a punishment to a man.
