Pedro Chávarry Announces His Resignation As Attorney General Of Peru


The Attorney General of Peru, Pedro Chávarry, announced that today he will present his resignation to the Board of Supreme Prosecutors, after the controversy that weighs against him for his alleged links to corruption, as well as for his decisions regarding the Lava Jato Special Team.

The announcement was made through his Twitter account, informed Telesur.

Chávarry was elected prosecutor of the nation in June 2018, in the context of numerous criticisms against him due to audios that would prove various links between him and the former Supreme Judge César Hinostroza, an alleged leader of the criminal organization Los Cuellos Blancos del Puerto”, the aforementioned media said.

In the following months, the Supreme Prosecutor led public discussions with some members of the Lava Jato Special Team, especially with the prosecutor José Domingo Pérez, who is in charge of the investigations against former President Alan García and the Popular Force leader, Keiko Fujimori.

Recently, various sectors of the population, political parties and social organizations mobilized in the streets of Peru to demand the resignation of the prosecutor.
