“We condemn the work of that right-wing foundation, which is clearly getting involved in internal political matters,” the PC-PR stated at the meeting of congressmen held behind closed doors and reported by the weekly daily Hildebrandt.
It recalled that this foundation brought Venezuelan coup leader Leopoldo Lopez to Peru to support far-right candidate Keiko Fujimori in June, 2019, whom Castillo defeated in the election.
Such support for Fujimori, according to the PC-PR, was also “a clear violation of electoral regulations by involving a foreign organization in domestic political matters.”
The PC-PR condemned “the actions of the right-wing coupmongers, who spare no efforts to seek the sponsorship of foundations from other countries to finance their propaganda actions and coup operations against a democratically elected government.”
This statement is another condemnation of this foundation, which should explain its interference to the Foreign Ministry, former presidential advisor Alberto Adrianzen notes.
The Peru Solidarity Network in Germany also joined this condemnation in an open letter to the Friederich Naumann Foundation, in which it stated that it should apologize to the Peruvian people for its interference in local politics.
