State Attorney General’s Office may question President Dina Boluarte in investigation for genocide

The State Attorney General’s Office (PGE) will actively participate in the interrogations that will be made to the President of the Republic, Dina Boluarte Zegarra, in the investigation into the deaths of 60 people in the framework of the protests that broke out in the country since on December 7, 2022.

According to the order that resolved the protection of rights formulated by the PGE, the Supreme Court of Preparatory Investigation declared the appeal filed against the Prosecutor’s Office partially founded, guaranteeing the participation of the institution that defends the interests of the State as aggrieved party.

However, the request for annulment of the declaration of the Prime Minister, Alberto Otárola, which appears in the minutes of February 16 of this year, was declared unfounded.

It should be noted that the president could not be questioned because the PGE and the defense of the relatives and those injured in the anti-government protests could not participate in said procedure, for which the Nation’s prosecutor, Patricia Benavides, postponed it.
