The Plenary of the Peruvian Congress has approved this Wednesday to suspend for 120 days the parliamentarian Freddy Díaz Monago (no group), who has been accused of having raped a female worker of the Chamber.
With 99 votes and 4 abstentions, the report of the Ethics Committee, which proposed to impose this sanction against Diaz Monago, has been given the go-ahead, as reported by ‘Diario Correo’.
Such document, which declares as founded the complaint, has gone ahead after a debate of more than one hour.
Prior to its approval, the president of the Ethics Commission, Karol Paredes, had advanced that a “forceful” report had been prepared to seek the support of the rest of parliamentarians.
“We are guaranteeing total transparency throughout this process and, in addition, there is no favoritism for anyone because we consider that this type of cases should not happen at any time because we are a reference at the level of citizenship,” she said, as reported by RPP radio station.
