This Sunday, April 17, the chats between the congressman from Free Peru, Guido BellidoY her godson and accused of violence against women, Daniel Abarca Sotowhere the alleged irregular negotiations on the part of Bellido when he was prime minister with Abarca are disclosed, who would have helped to occupy the position of advisor in the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC)according to an investigation by Panorama.
It all started when Bellido took office as a legislator and received congratulations from his godson, days later to pass him his resume and ask him to place him as deputy minister of the MTC. After the assumption of the congressman from Peru Libre as president of the Council of Ministers, Daniel Abarca insisted on his request, but this time he offered him an apartment in San Miguel (on July 30, 2021) “so that he is more comfortable.”
On July 31 they would have met and on August 4 Bellido asked Abarca if he already had his “resolution” for the position he had requested, but Abarca replied that he was only as an advisor. Days later, on August 6, the godson thanks the then prime minister for his “support”. All this could be read in the chats that the report showed.
Likewise, Abarca would have played the role of lobbyist, because, according to the investigation, he tried and obtained the meeting between the then head of the PCM and the businessmen Diego Aguinaga Meza and Diego Lombardero Lamas, who are in the field of tourism in Cusco.
On November 7, 2021, the former adviser told him that one of the businessmen was asking him for prostitutes and warned him that this would be ‘charged’ to Bellido. “Come on, we’re going to make her pretty there,” the congressman from Peru Libre replies.
At the beginning of 2022, Bellido begins to ask Daniel Abarca for alleged favors as compensation for the position granted, for which he charged 15,000 soles per month. The favors basically focused on the purchase of tickets: Guido Bellido would have continually requested Daniel Abarca for plane tickets to the interior of the country. She even asked him for a ticket to “Pinturita”.
Bellido could be accused of influence peddling
Criminal lawyer Carlos Caro pointed out for the report that the crimes that could be committed are influence peddling, bribery or corruption.
“The code of ethics of the public administration prohibits sponsoring private interests before the public administration. Who violates this rule can commit not only an administrative infraction, but can also commit the crime of illegal sponsorship or incompatible negotiation or influence peddling”, he added.
