The Prosecutor’s Office arrested this Wednesday the ousted president of Peru Pedro Castillo at the headquarters of the Lima Prefecture, where he went with his family and former Prime Minister Anibal Torres after announcing that he was dissolving Congress, decreeing an emergency government and called new legislative elections.

The National Police of Peru has published on its Twitter profile a photograph of Castillo detained in which it has highlighted that in compliance with its powers described in the police code they have carried out this arrest.

Shortly after announcing his intentions, the Prosecutor’s Office announced legal measures against Castillo for having broken the constitutional order, and his main officer, Patricia Benavides, reminded him that “no authority can place itself above the Constitution” and that “it must comply with its constitutional mandates”.
