Castle.
Sources of Peru21 reported that the diligence at the base of the fap It was to request documentation, but also to confirm whether Vásquez traveled to Chiclayo on June 23 with a delegation of Castleas revealed by a traveler registry published by the Liber Center, of the Press and Society Institute (IPYS).
In that report, “Lay Vásquez Castillo” was recorded as “nephew” and with a DNI number that does not exist in the Reniec database.
The false data in the official registry is striking, since the ruler does not have any relative named “Lay Vásquez Castillo.”
That day, the then Minister of Defense, José Gavidia, and relatives of the Head of State also traveled: Arnol Castillo Paredes, Christian Ríos Castillo, Kevin Castillo Medina.
Given this, the Minister of Justice, Félix Chero, asserted that the fact deserves “clarification” and “explanations of the case.” “It will have to be made transparent,” he told the press.

The criminal lawyer Fernando Silva stated that, if it is proven that Vásquez used an aircraft of the fap to flee to Chiclayo, he would be committing the crime of personal concealment.

For her part, Congresswoman Vivian Olivos (FP) revealed that on June 26, three days after “Lay Vásquez” traveled, a delegation led by Castle, in which his relatives were present –including the detainee Yenifer Paredes–, flew to Chiclayo without having an official scheduled activity. “I have asked the Attorney General of the Nation, Patricia Benavides, to start an investigation into these trips”, he told this newspaper.
“It is suspicious that three days before another trip was made to the same city where a person named “Lay Vásquez Castillo” appears as a crew member, who also records a non-existent DNI number. If it is verified that said person would be Fray Vásquez, the obstruction of justice”, he concluded.
They ask for a report from the Mindef
The president of the Congressional Oversight Commission, Héctor Ventura (Popular Force), asked the Minister of Defense, Daniel Barragán, for information on the number of protocol and unofficial flights carried out by President Pedro Castillo and his family since his government began. .
Through an official letter, Ventura requested the documentation based on the alleged trip that Fray Vásquez made on June 23 to Chiclayo.
His bench partner, Alejandro Aguinaga, considered that the president would have committed a crime if the trip of his fugitive family member was confirmed. “It seems that Castillo does not know or they have not made him see and he does not even imagine the criminal dimension in which he would be involved“, said.
