    The Justice of Peru decrees seven days of preventive arrest against Pedro Castillo


    The judge of the Supreme Court of Peru Juan Carlos Checkley has ordered this Thursday to decree seven days of preventive detention against former president Pedro Castillo while the investigation is carried out against him for an alleged crime of rebellion, after he announced the dissolution of Congress .

    The magistrate thus agrees to the request of the Prosecutor’s Office that argued that the measure was necessary to continue with the investigations aimed at, for example, identifying which other officials would have participated in Castillo’s decision to end Congress, establish an emergency government and call new legislative elections.
