LIVE |  PJ announces decision on second preventive detention against Pedro Castillo

  • Pedro Castillo could be sentenced to 32 years: the prosecutor’s arguments to request preventive detention
  • Prisoners, investigated or denounced: the Presidency of the Republic and the weight of justice | REPORT

Supreme Judge Juan Carlos Ckeckley Soria announces his decision regarding the prosecutor’s request for 36 months of preventive detention against the vacated former president Pedro Castillo for the alleged crimes of criminal organization, influence peddling and collusion committed during his government.

The magistrate points out that preventive detention is the ideal and necessary measure. He indicates that although he already complies with said measure, in the Barbadillo prison, for his trial for the crime of rebellion, it is not aimed at ensuring his permanence in the investigation for criminal organization.

The Public Ministry requested the same measure for former ministers Juan Silva (Transport) -currently a fugitive from justice- and Geiner Alvarado (Housing).

During Wednesday’s hearing, Supreme Prosecutor Galinka Meza projected that Castillo would be sentenced to 32 years in prison for the crimes for which he is being prosecuted.

Meanwhile, he said, Geiner Alvarado could be sentenced to 17 years and 8 months and Juan Silva could have a sentence of 24 years and 8 months in jail.

Pedro Castillo is already serving a first order of 18 months of preventive detention in the Barbadillo prison for the alleged crimes of rebellion and conspiracy for the coup that he perpetrated on December 7, 2022.
