The plenary session of Congress questions this afternoon the Minister of Transportation, Geiner Alvarado , who will have to answer for the alleged irregular acts when he was in charge of the Housing sector and that motivated the National Prosecutor's Office to investigate him for being an alleged operator of a criminal organization< b>, headed by the president.
The two motions -one with 14 questions and the other with 9 questions- were approved with the support of Perú Libre and legislators from other left-wing groups related to the president.
After the interpellation, the legislators can present a motion of censure, which, if successful, will force Minister Alvarado to present his resignation to the position. A few days ago, El Comercio spoke with government factions that did not rule out going down that path.
On August 11, the Nation's prosecutor, Patricia Benavides ordered the preliminary investigation of President Pedro Castillo and Geiner Alvarado, in his capacity as Minister of Housing, for the alleged crime of criminal organization. The investigations cover the works awarded in the provinces of Chota-Cajamarca and Cajatambo-Lima.
