Óscar Moises Pérez, presumably Shining Path’s main cashier in the Apurímac and Ene Valleys (VRAE), was captured in Huanta, Ayacucho, by a joint squad of Armed Force and the National Police members, reported RPP.

Pérez is Orlando Alejandro Borda Casafranca’s cousin, Shining Path’s military head in the VRAE area, better known as “Alipio,” and also one of the six biggest drug traffickers in this area.

Military reports assure that Pérez was responsible for providing logistic support, such as ammunition and food, to members of this organization. He will be pressed with charges for laundering money and transporting cocaine chloridate.

Pérez has been taken to Pichari, where the interrogations are being held.
