Pedro Castillo denounced in a judicial hearing to be “kidnaped” in prison for seven months, when the authorities arrested him after an attempt to assume more powers.
To this day I do not have the right to have communication with my children, with my parents, my family. It can take away my freedom, but it cannot take away my right to communicate,” said former President Castillo.
Also, the former president has accused the Prosecutor’s Office of being an “effective collaborator” of the Congress of the Republic and of the current president of the Andean country, Dina Boluarte, according to the Peruvian radio station RPP.
There has been a plan, a whole plot. The people realize who is who. Because it is the first time in the history of Peru that a government comes from the interior of the country, because it did not submit to the great interests of the power groups,” she asserted.
In response, the Minister of the Interior, Vincent Romero, has branded Castillo’s statement as “absurd”, and has taken the opportunity to criticize his mandate. “We have been practically paralyzed for a year and a half. Incompetent people were in the Government,” he said.

Former President Pedro Castillo is not kidnapped. He is detained by order of the competent authority. So this is absurd. We reject those versions. I think the country is going through a very difficult, complicated moment,” he added.
