On the brink of confession
If you reach an agreement with the prosecutors, and if you accept as a protected witness or effective collaborator, Beder Camacho Gadea would be an exceptional witness due to his proximity or protagonist of criminal acts that involve President Castillo and his closest collaborators inside and outside the Government Palace.
For this reason, Camacho in his last statement strongly stressed that they should stop intimidating him, otherwise he would spread everything he knows firsthand.
“If they think that by killing Beder Camacho they are going to silence this, I tell them publicly that I have recorded a video where I am telling my truth. I am going to continue telling my truth, but I have also asked for protection in case something happens to me, and the videos will automatically come out,” threatened Beder Camacho.
On November 25, 2021, Beder Camacho was appointed Deputy Secretary General of the Secretariat of the Presidency and, in the midst of the scandal over the accusations against him, he was dismissed on August 26, 2022.

In an interview on the program ‘Tiempo real’, by journalist Jaime Díaz Mayurí, Beder Camacho made it clear that his loyalty was to his family and the country, without mentioning President Pedro Castillo.
“On WhatsApp I received a call from an unknown number, and as always (…) I received threats against my physical integrity. (…) The tranquility is that we are ready to offer and attend all the proceedings that the Public Ministry summons us. We are on that path, and as I repeat, my loyalty is with my family and with my country”, Camacho noted.
“From the first moment I have attended and I have provided all the information that the Public Ministry has requested (…) I trust the Public Ministry and I trust that an objective investigation will be carried out on this process,” he said.
However, according to the journalist of the magazine Hildebrandt in his thirteen Américo Zambrano, Beder Camacho gave him false information to harm the Nation’s prosecutor, Patricia Benavidesas stated in the complaint against President Castillo.
“What is true about everything that is published about you?” journalist Jaime Díaz asked Beder Camacho.
“It is an issue on which I would like to tell my truth, but it is a reserved issue, where neither party can give statements,” he replied.
Camacho defended himself against the accusations of the Special Team of Prosecutors against the Corruption of Power. For example, denies having belonged to the so-called “shadow cabinet”whose members allegedly did the “dirty work” ordered by President Pedro Castillo.
“My children are calm because they know who their father is. They know that their father has not grabbed a sol from the State. I live from my salary, from my consultancies and from the business that I always do honestly. I have always said that you have to walk straight, ”he indicated.
“There never was a ‘shadow cabinet’”, in my case I’ve never been a member of a ‘shadow cabinet‘”, said.
However, several effective collaborators of the Special Team of Prosecutors against the Corruption of Power have indicated that Beder Camacho acted as President Castillo’s operator to hinder the action of justice in order to protect his nephews. If he avails himself of effective collaboration, Camacho will have to confess his crimes.
