Hours after announcing his dismissal… Videos of the moment the President of Peru was arrested

The authorities in Peru arrested the country’s president, Pedro Castillo, hours after announcing his impeachment, in a rapid development in the South American country.

And the Public Prosecutor’s Office in Peru announced that the dismissed and arrested president is accused of rebelling against the country’s laws, at a time when the new president was sworn in after his predecessor was dismissed and arrested.

Activists and bloggers posted videos on social media documenting the moment Castillo was arrested.

And the police announced on their official Twitter account that the security forces had arrested President Pedro Castillo and referred to him as the former president.

On Wednesday, the Peruvian parliament, which is dominated by the right-wing opposition, announced the impeachment of left-wing President Pedro Castillo on charges of “moral incompetence”, ignoring the president’s decision to dissolve parliament hours earlier.

And 101 deputies out of 130 agreed to dismiss the president in a live televised session, despite Castillo’s declaration of the dissolution of Parliament and the state of emergency in the country.

Pedro Castillo has previously survived two other motions of impeachment, the last of which was in March 2022.

At the time, the opposition accused him of interfering in a corruption case believed to have involved his close associates and of “treason” after he announced his willingness to hold a referendum on granting access to the Pacific Ocean to neighboring Bolivia, which does not overlook the sea.
