Cavero defends final report

I think these deaths have been politicized and what I have tried to do is see it objectively, it is unfortunate that it has been politicized, it seems that for the left some deaths are worth more than others and that's unfortunate”, he said.

There are eleven police investigated by the Public Ministry and that continues, this process of constitutional accusation does not prevent the people present in the investigation from being investigateds, hopefully the Public Ministry finds who they shot”, he added.

This Monday, the Subcommittee on Constitutional Accusations rejected the reconsideration that sought to have Cavero's report voted on again. However, the proposal did not obtain the necessary support.

As recalled, the subcommission filed, with the casting vote of its president, the complaint against Merino de Lama, former Prime Minister Ántero Flores-Aráoz and former Interior Minister Gastón Rodríguez, as Alejandro Cavero stated in his report.
