    “Prove it with facts”: Pedro Castillo rejects the crimes he faces in Peru

    This week, the former president has given details about the transfer he made in December 2022 to the Mexican embassy in Lima.

    The former president of Peru, Pedro Castillo, this Tuesday again rejected the charges against him in his country, where he faces a double preventive detention for a series of crimes allegedly committed during his short administration.

    “I have never led nor have I been part of a criminal network. The current criminal network today is in the Congress of the Republic, where the ‘mochasueldos’ are and it is in the current Government Palace, where the ‘mochavidas’ are,” Castillo stated.

    During an exception hearing on the inadmissibility of action requested by Castillo’s defense, the former president assured that he “never” used the in-person investiture to “influence the appointment of people in exchange for a perk.”

    Castle meets 36 months of preventive detention for being the alleged leader of a criminal organization and another 18 months of preventive detention for alleged rebellion and conspiracy after his attempt to dissolve Parliament in December 2018.

    “Prove it with facts. Where is the money I received? What time did I meet? How did I name the people?” Enough of so many lies towards the countryall these things have to be demonstrated in practice,” he demanded.

    “Isn’t that a kidnapping?” Castillo asked Judge Juan Carlos Checkley Soria. “As a result of that, all these things are generated,” he added.
