The suspended supreme judge César Hinostroza resold at least six tickets for the games of the Peruvian soccer team in the Russian World Cup. This was known by a set of audios that the television program “Cuarto Poder” broadcasted last night in which the magistrate is heard talking to his travel agent.
“In the recording, which dates from May 4, the former president of the Second Transitory Criminal Chamber of the Supreme Court asks ‘Giovannita’, his travel agent, to ‘place’ the tickets that have been left over to him and his friends”, informed El Comercio.
The question people are asking themselves is how did the judge go from having no tickets to owning and over stock that he wanted to sell?
In another audio recording, the judge is heard speaking about selling tickets to someone with the surname Betancourt for $400 US dollars each.
Last week, the supreme judge defended himself by saying that he had bought his tickets through a deposit to the bank account of the FPF. But his name does not seem to be in the list of people who bought tickets, which was published in recent days by the federation”, wrote El Comercio.
