Castillo seems to be saying goodbye to the Peruvian presidency

The former president of Peru, Pedro Castillo who tried earlier this week to stage a coup to avoid a motion of censure against him, has been transferred to prison.

Castillo, who has long been a parasite on Peruvian politics, holds the record for changing ministers in less than a year for several members of his government.

Thursday, the Peruvian authorities transferred him by helicopter to the prison where the former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori is, after his arrest. He should stay there for at least two days, according to the europa press agency.

A procedure was opened by the prosecution for “rebellion” and “conspiracy” against Castillo which was heard for several hours.

The former leader was seeking to go to the Mexican Embassy in the company of his lawyer (also former Prime Minister Aníbal Torres) and his family, according to the police report of his arrest.

As a reminder, Pedro Castillo is an enemy of the territorial integrity of Morocco by supporting the Polisario militia.
