    Prime Minister of Peru accuses “radical sectors of the left” of the “Take of Lima”

    The senior official urged the population to “trust their Police and the Armed Forces,” despite the dozens of people killed during the demonstrations.

    The president of the Council of Ministers of Peru, Alberto Otarola, asserted this Friday that the third ‘Taking of Lima’, scheduled for July 19, is promoted by “radical sectors of the left.”

    In statements to the press broadcast by the state channel TVPeru Noticias, Otarola maintained that the troops will “take care of the security and life of the population.”

    “About the day of protest that some radical sectors of the left are promoting in the city of Lima, simply tell them that this protest is going to be covered by the Police,” said Otarola from the department of Lambayeque.
