    Peruvian Congress approves motion to declare Petro persona non grata

    The Foreign Relations Commission of the Peruvian Congress approved a motion on Tuesday to declare Colombian President Gustavo Petro persona non grata following statements the Colombian president made last week about the Peruvian National Police.

    “In Peru they march like Nazis, against their own people, breaking the American Convention on Human Rights,” Petro said Friday, referring to the deployment of the police, in the most recent marches in the Historic Center of Lima.

    The Foreign Relations Commission described these statements as “unacceptable”, which “constitute an offense to our National Police of Peru, to the Republic of Peru and, by trivializing the holocaust, it also constitutes an offense to the entire Jewish people, many of whose members are Peruvian nationals,” says the document.

    The vote was supported by 13 congressmen, three abstained and none spoke out against it.

    The motion would imply limitations for the president when he enters Peru, where after the rise of President Dina Boluarte on December 7, protests broke out that have left a balance of 60 deaths and thousands of wounded.
