The president of the Congress, Lady Camones, considered as “controversial ” and “hard to believe” that images from the security cameras of the Government Palace were lost the day the Public Ministry intervened to arrest the sister-in-law of President Pedro Castillo, Yenifer Paredes.
“It is controversial, it is hard to believe, that just when the Public Ministry requests it, the images, but obviously we understand that they are going to ask for it, so if something happened the same technology will give us the answer”, he told the media from the Congress facilities.< /p>
When asked if she would ask President Pedro Castillo to resign, Camones stated that it is a decision that only falls to the head of state.
“About the resignation, it is a decision of the president, I cannot recommend him, I represent all the congressmens”, he expressed.
Finally, he called on the caucuses to elect as chairmen of the committees legislators who have no questions or pending investigations, as is the case of José Luna, recently elected as head of the Budget Committee.
“The benches make the decisions. As president, I can ask the benches to choose people within the commissions without question, if we ask the Executive to make good decisions, the same we must do in the commissions”, he stated.
