Peru is undergoing a new political crisis, after the country’s attorney general, Patricia Benavides, filed a constitutional complaint against President Pedro Castillo for leading an alleged criminal organization, among other charges.

Castillo “categorically” denied the accusations made to Congress and accused the attorney general’s office of acting “politically”, claiming they had no evidence against him.

He also confirmed that he would not seek asylum and would not leave his country, and reiterated that he was a victim of “political persecution”.

The president even went so far as to call “A new kind of coupComplaint against former ministers Juan Silva (Transportation and Communications) and Jenner Alvarado (Housing, Construction and Sanitation).
