Yesterday, the National Council of the Magistracy (CNM) ordered the indefinite suspension of the Supreme Judge César Hinostroza Pariachi for being involved in audios that are allegedly about corruption, and he denounced that he has been receiving death threats.
Through a complaint filed at the San Borja police station, the magistrate specified that he has received threats through phone calls done to his cell phone and landline numbers, as well as in social media.
He also told the police that material damage has been caused to his house and that he fears for his and his family’s safety.
Hinostroza is prevented from leaving the country for a period of four months at the request of the Office of the Prosecutor of the Nation. The CNM also opened vacancy proceedings for Iván Noguera, accepted the irrevocable resignation of Guido Águila and set July 24 as the deadline to decide on the process opened to the head of the National Office of Electoral Processes, ONPE (Oficina Nacional de Procesos Electorales).
“As it is remembered, IDL-Reporteros published a series of audios in which crimes of corruption and influence peddling among businessmen, judges and members of the CNM would be revealed”, wrote El Comercio.
