On Monday, Peruvian Prime Minister Juan Jimenez denied reports that said the recent riots at La Parada and Gamarra would affect investments in the country.
Jimenez’ comments come after deadly riots broke out last week at La Parada, allowing gangs and looters to take advantage of the chaos, and proceed to ransack local stores in Gamarra.
This week Jimenez urged the public to keep calm, and emphasized the work being carried out by the police authorities, and said they were working hard to ensure safety across Lima.
>Previously, Diogenes Alva, a businessman at the Gamarra shopping district, said that about 25,000 business owners had been >affected by the violent clashes that occurred last week.
However, Jimenez has said many of the reports of looting and violence in Plaza Lima Norte were false, and said the city would continue to receive investments.
“There has been damage, but we must take into account that many people use information services to give false reports,” he added.
