Legalization of coca growth is not accepted


Yesterday the local governments of Cusco and Huánuco had to accept the sentence of the Constitutional Tribunal (TC),that declared not to legalize the growth of coca leaves in those regions.

Javier Alva Orlandini, former president of the TC and the State’s lawyer Jorge Santisteban de Noriega, asked publicly to the local governments  to avoid presenting a complain to supra national organizations, due to their lack of competence in this particular matter.

The debate concerning the law of the coca leaves will take place in October.
