Fujimori’s followers are under investigation in Peru

Fujimori’s followers are under investigation in Peru

Lima, Jun 14 (Prensa Latina) Peruvian Public Prosecutor's Office on Monday began an investigation into the harassment of Keiko Fujimori's followers against authorities and personalities, in an effort to massively annul votes in order to reverse her defeat in the electoral runoff.

The Public Prosecutor’s Office confirmed that it has instructed the Crime Prevention Prosecutor’s Office to investigate the increasing incidents, which range from harassment at the homes of electoral authorities to a campaign of intimidation through the Internet.

The La Republica newspaper, whose editor, Gustavo Mohme, is also a target of those who hurl McCarthyist accusations at their victims, described the demonstrators as hordes noting that they were followers of Fuerza Popular (FP), a pro-Fujimori party.

Protesters, most of them wearing Peruvian national soccer team t-shirts, used by Fujimori as his election campaign attire, carry drums and other objects to make noise until late at night and shout insults and McCarthyist slogans against the harassed, the newspaper reported.

On Sunday evening, the heads of the National Jury of Elections (JNE), Jorge Salas, and of the National Office of Electoral Processes (ONPE), Piero Corvetto, were again subjected to similar harassment.

The hostile elements are pressuring Salas in his capacity as president of the JNE, who will ultimately decide on Fujimori’s claims to annul voting records in order to reverse Castillo’s advantage in the official vote count, which is in charge of the ONPE, whose head is Corvetto.
