The Peruvian president is accumulated by the headaches. Zoraida Ávalos, Fiscal de la Nación, has quoted Pedro Castillo for December 14, the day she should bear witness about the scandal of the military ascents that shook the Andean country in November. Prosecutors investigate whether the Presidency intervened in the ascent of the officers of the armed forces, a "alleged interference", according to the statement issued by the prosecutor.
The Public Ministry has summoned Castillo, "who should point out the place where he will offer his statement." The diligence is part of the research that follows against the former defense minister, Walter Ayala, and against the former Secretary General of the presidential office, Bruno Pacheco, by the alleged crimes of abuse of authority and illegal sponsorship.
A Pacheco is also investigated after it was dismissed. The prosecutors found an envelope with $ 20,000 in the bathroom of the office at the presidential palace. He is accused of illicit enrichment, by evidenced by a alleged asbalance as a patrimonial.
Jorge Chaparro, Air Force General Excomandating, and José Vizcarra, former General Commander of the Army, denounced the pressures and interference in November during the appointment process. "The Minister of Defense told me that this comes from above," explained Chaparro, who has already appeared before the Prosecutor's Office. The former boss of the Air Force testified that both the Minister and Pacheco pressed in favor of General Edgar Briceño and the Coroneles Carlos Castillo and Herbert Vilca.
Chaparro was relieved after paying the scandal, one of the many who have shaken the presidency of Pedro Castillo despite carrying just four months sitting on the boardwatch. Next week the Congress will decide if it starts against the Master of Cajamarca an 'impeachment' process, for which the affirmative vote of 52 deputies is needed. A figure that with the passage of hours and scandals seems very close.
With the vacancy request, brought by the right-wing congressman Patricia Chirinos, it is intended to declare Castillo with "Permanent moral disability". One of the accusations that weigh against the former union leader, elected within the ranks of free Peru Radical (PL), is precisely the "trafficking of influences on ascents in the armed forces", as collected by the document supported by 29 congressmen .
In addition, castle critics highlighted the supposed illicit financing of PL, the links of one of their collaborators (already dismissed) with a luminous path, the "weakening of the democratic system" by its initial support for Venezuela, "Generate economic instability", the mistreatment A means of communication and the supposed "permissiveness to violence against women".
Some of these points lost bellows with the appointments of the second Castle Cabinet, directed by the 'Premier' Mirtha Vásquez, feminist and human rights defender. Even the new Chancellor, Oscar Maútua, stood with the continental majority in the criticisms of him to the electoral parody of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua.
These accusations was added in recent days the research of the Fourth Power Television Program on the use of Personal Housing of Castle as a parallel office, in which the President would have received entrepreneurs benefited from government projects and companies with managers condemned by washing of assets.
"The complaints made by the media have not been clarified by the president. The country needs precise and forceful explanations. Democracy is also transparency," said the president of Congress, Maricarmen Alva.Date Of Update: 09 December 2021, 02:09
