    Peru: Congress Processes Corruption Complaint Against Castillo

    "I have received the OAS high-level group so that they know what is happening in Peru and how some sectors want to endanger the country's democracy and stability, by using lies to attack an administration that is focused on working for progress and equality for everyone," he tweeted.

    The Peruvian president accompanied the message with photographs of the meeting with the OAS mission and its cabinet, which is headed by Prime Minister Aníbal Torres.

    Previously, Castillo asked the OAS to activate the Inter-American Democratic Charter because he holds the the far-right opposition is preparing "a new type of coup" against him. This happened after the Attorney General Patricia Benavides filed a complaint in Congress against the Castillo, accusing him of being the leader of a criminal organization.

    After a ninety-minute meeting, the OAS mission left for an interview with the opposition Congress President Jose Williams and other representatives of the caucuses.

    The Judiciary president Elvia Barrios will meet with the OAS mission on Tuesday at noon, when she will explain to multilateral officials the judicial actions taken regarding the allegations of alleged corruption filed against Castillo and his closest entourage.

    On Oct. 20, the OAS plenary approved sending a mission to Peru to prepare a report on the local political crisis, which will be presented to its Permanent Council.
