The president of Peru, Pedro Castillo, has urged the country’s judicial authorities on Thursday to investigate the alleged acts of corruption carried out by his Government after uncovering a series of meetings with ministers and businessmen at his home.

We are going to make it transparent and from here I insist on the Cabinet, the ministers so that they also have the same “, said the president.

Along these lines, Castillo has highlighted his frontal position in the face of corruption and has asserted that any member of the Executive who is plagued by this type of misconduct will be removed from his functions so that he can answer before the Justice.

“If you find any official or any authority in this Government, who has participated or is a participant in irregular acts, together with you we are going to be firm and nip and be separated immediately, and who has to answer to the Justice,” he said. .
