The Government of Peru suspends the party of the Alianza de Lima due to protests

Lima.- The Ministry of the Interior of Peru left firm this Wednesday the suspension of the match of the second day of the league between the champion Alianza de Lima and Centro Deportivo Municipal for security reasons related to the anti-government protests in the capital.

The Sports Safety Directorate (Disede) rejected the security plan presented by Alianza de Lima and, therefore, the celebration of the meeting scheduled for this Saturday at the Alejandro Villanueva stadium, known as Matute, in the popular Lima district of La Victoria.

Through a letter to the ministry, the Disede reported that the Lima Police Region did not approve the security plan on the recommendation of the National Commission against Violence in Sports Shows and for the extension of the state of emergency in the department of Lima as a result of the anti-government protests.

The suspension of this match is added to four other scheduled matches in the regions of Lima, Cuzco and Callao, where the state of emergency is maintained in the face of the demonstrations.

The duels between Academia Cantolao and Sport Boys in Callao, Cienciano from Cusco and the César Vallejo University, Binacional and ADT from Tarma, Melgar from Arequipa and Deportivo Garcilaso also do not have the approval of the Interior, according to local media.

Since January 18 with the call for the march announced as ‘the taking of Lima’the capital of the country registers continuous demonstrations in the center of the city that have left dozens of injured among demonstrators, police and journalists.

Thus, the political and social uncertainty that the country is experiencing Andino also moves to the Professional Soccer League, which announced this Tuesday on networks that the second and third days of the league “are subject to possible modifications according to the social situation in the country.”

“The LFP appreciates the collaboration of the competent authorities so that the Peruvian championship can start normally and hopes that all the necessary conditions will soon be met in an environment of security and peace,” Liga 1 concluded in its statement.

Last week the local league was supposed to start, but it could not take place due to the protests, which forced the postponement of the matches.

The anti-government protests that have been registered since December 9 have left at least 62 people dead.
