The agency accused the Peruvian head of state of leading a plot of corruption and influence peddling when hiring companies for public works. The prosecutor, Patricia Benavides, filed the complaint with Congress, hoping that she can eliminate the immunity that Castillo enjoys.
It is a new accusation against the Peruvian president, Pedro Castillo. The attorney general of Peru, Patricia Benavides, filed a constitutional complaint against the president for leading a plot of corruption and influence peddling since he was in power.
An accusation that is already in Congress and that now must go through a process of paperwork until it is debated in the plenary session of this body. For the time being, it will have to be analyzed by the Parliament’s Subcommittee on Constitutional Accusations, which, if its origin is determined, will go to the Permanent Commission.
So far, President Castillo has up to six pending investigations by the Prosecutor’s Office for alleged cases of corruption and one for plagiarism of his doctoral thesis. All this in just over a year that he has been in office.
Throughout this process, the Attorney General denounced a “constant and ferocious obstruction of Justice displayed by the alleged criminal organization, taking advantage of all the power that being in the Government gives them.”
