“Nor, I (was) not informed about the plans of operations. I reiterate that what we ministers were informed about was the result of the actions of the Armed forces in support of the National Police, but not about the operational plans because the direction and execution of the operational plans does not correspond to the Minister of Defense,” Otárola explained to prosecutors Edwin Núñez Cancino and Jesús Camacho Laura who questioned him on January 23 and February 16th.

The head of the PCM even said that he was unaware of the use of firearms during the repression of the protests in Andahuaylas, Ayacucho, Juliaca, Pichanaki and Arequipaamong other towns where deaths were recorded from the use of Galil and AKM rifles, which are officially used by the Army and the National Police.
