On the other hand, the advisor of the technical cabinet of the Presidency, Éder Vitón, is charged with crimes of criminal organization, according to the mentioned newspaper.

Last July 23, the Peruvian Prosecutor’s Office decided to open an investigation against Castillo for alleged crime against the administration of justice or personal concealment, after former Minister of the Interior Mariano Gonzalez accused him of obstructing Justice.

Gonzalez accused the Peruvian president of obstructing the work of the country’s Intelligence Services so that they would not find the whereabouts of fugitives Bruno Pacheco, Juan Silva and Fray Vasquez Castillo, the president’s nephew.
