Regarding the access of several press media to the statement of the “effective collaborator” (implicated who blames those involved at a higher level in exchange for a light sentence), he affirmed that this “evidences that the Prosecutor’s Office would be part of a plot to destabilize the government”.
He urged this entity to “continue with the investigation already on track and in the shortest term give objective and coherent explanations with justice; the people need to know the truth”, emphasized the President.
He underlined that “there is a minority sector that will never accept our popular and democratic government, they seek to remove us from office in order not to solve the problems of our country”.
He also maintained that the Peruvian people and the international community know of the anti-democratic and coup plotting will of this minority sector and called on the population to remain alert to defend “democracy and the governability of a government that was born from the people”.
Meanwhile, the extreme right-wing congressmen Norma Yarrow and Jorge Montoya announced their intention to propose a motion in Parliament for presidential vacancy on the constitutional grounds of “permanent moral incapacity”.
Montoya said he will do so tomorrow, in a meeting of spokespersons of the different parliamentary benches that will define the agenda of the next congressional plenary session.
Meanwhile, the secretary general of the ruling Peru Libre party, Vladimir Cerron, affirmed that the organization and its congressmen “are firm to defend the legitimately constituted popular government”.
“Tough against the coup plotters, prepared for popular resistance in the forums and streets. In this struggle there is no return ticket, you win or you die!”, added the leader.
For her part, Peru Libre congresswoman Margot Palacios declared that one cannot believe a lobbyist like Karim Lopez, who is the subject of three investigations for managing undue contracts with the State, together with the former secretary general of the government palace, Bruno Pacheco.
