In an expansion of the complaint filed against the coordinator of the Special Team, Colonel PNP Harvey Colchado HuamaníPresident peter castlethrough your lawyer Eduardo Pachas Palaciosdemanded that he reveal what funds did he use to finance the raid on the Government Palace to search for Yenifer Paredes, on August 9 this year.
According to the document presented by Pachas before the General Inspectorate of the National Police, agency in charge of the case, Colonel Colchado committed embezzlement and embezzlement if he used resources from the Search Division, of the General Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of the Interior (Digimin), because the financing of the operation should have been borne by the Public Ministry.
With the evident intention of disqualifying the recognized professional work of Colonel Colchado, President Castillo argues that he should not have been part of the operation in the Palace because he is not “a criminal investigator.”
Nevertheless, Colchado’s defense responded that the colonel’s presence was due to an express request of the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
“They say that because he was from intelligence, he should not have intervened. That is wanting to surprise public opinion because the prosecutor herself asked Colonel Colchado to participate as support in the organization of the diligence. Obviously, the prosecutor does not break the door, it is the police that provide physical support, “explained Colchado’s lawyer, Luis Naldos Blanco.
According to the lawyer Naldos, President Castillo’s defense team uses “the art of deception” to make complaints against the police that is on the heels of its environment.
“The intention is to sanction him so that he does not continue working in the Special Team”Luis Naldos affirmed.
In addition to expanding the complaint against the Colonel Colchado before the General Inspectorate of the PNP, yesterday a second accusation was also filed against the coordinator of the Special Team that is looking for fugitives from the presidential entourage, the nephew of the head of state, Fray Vásquez Castillo, and the former Minister of Transportation Juan Silva Villegas.
It is a complaint this time anonymous, which tries to attribute to Colchado an embezzlement and a self-kidnapping to hide the crime. It has all the characteristics of a manufacture.
“He is accused of having participated in an alleged act of self-kidnapping and embezzlement, but he had no intervention in these events. It is said that the colonel would not have accounted for the funds of the Diviac (High Complexity Crimes Investigation Division), but Colchado left said agency in 2019 and the facts of the complaint occur in 2020, ”Naldos objected.
Coincidentally, on August 31, six days before the filing of the complaint, the ruling congressman Pasión Dávila affirmed that Colonel Colchado “has a complaint for self-kidnapping and has embezzled 630 thousand soles, which is what the Inspectorate is investigating”.
Colchado’s lawyer explained: “The most curious thing is that this complaint is anonymous. A complaint that is collected by an information note by a WhatsApp chain. That is, there is no identifiable source.”
For Luis Naldos, the date is not accidental. The same day this information was collected, Castillo’s lawyer filed the first complaint with the Inspectorate.
“What I see is a clear interference by the president in the investigative function of the Public Ministry. And they confuse the facts because Colonel Colchado is not the person who has directed the search procedure, who demands it is the MP and there were two prosecutors there”, argues, for his part, the lawyer Luciano López, who assumes the constitutional defense of the colonel.
President Castillo complains to Colonel Harvey Colchado about how he financed the raid on the Palace to look for Yenifer Paredes.
