THE LAST VISIT TO CERRON
On January 7, Cerrón and congressmen from Peru Libre visited President Castillo at the Palace. According to the president, the meeting, in which parliamentarians Waldemar Cerrón, Kelly Portalatino, Katy Ugarte and Álex Paredes also participated, was a “political dialogue meeting.”
By traveling to Lima to meet with Castillo without judicial authorization, Cerrón violated a rule of conduct. After that, the Prosecutor’s Office chose to request before the Judiciary the variation of Cerrón’s sentence of restricted appearance for preventive detention.
Finally, the request was declared unfounded, but the Public Ministry appealed the resolution.
