Judicial Power Of Peru Denies The Request To Leave The Country To Pedro Pablo Kuczynski


The Judicial Power of Peru has denied on Tuesday the request to leave the country to former President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (PPK) to travel to the United States to attend a clinic for his health.

“The Peruvian judge Juan Carlos Sánchez has declared the request inadmissible since he considers that the ex-President does not have an argument that proves that he must be treated abroad”, explained Europa Press.

According to Sánchez, the request doesn’t comply with the precautionary measure of the impediment to leave the country that PPK faces since he is being investigated for corruption.

Prosecutor José Domingo has recommended to the defense of the former president to perform more medical tests to explain the reasons why Kuczynski must travel abroad”, you can read in Europa Press.

For their part, PPK’s lawyers said that they will present an appeal.

Kuczynski presented his resignation on March 23, just one day before Congress voted a motion of vacancy against him for his alleged involvement in the payment of bribes in exchange for political favors starring the Brazilian construction company Odebrecht.
