The Judiciary evaluates the impediment to leave the country of the censored Minister of Transport and Communications Geiner Alvarado, as requested by the Prosecutor’s Office for alleged commission of illegal acts in the modality of “fraudulent public tenders”.
Percy Ipanaqué Navarro, former minister Geiner Alvarado’s lawyer, requested to attend the hearing on Tuesday, September 21, where the request to prevent the former official from leaving the country for 36 months will be evaluated.
Through a document, to which RPP had access, Alvarado’s defender made this request to the supreme judge of the Supreme Investigation Court under the protection of subsections 3, 5, 14 and 20 of article 139 of the Political Constitution of Peru.
Last Thursday, September 15, the Prosecutor’s Office requested an exit impediment for the former Minister of Transport and Housing and only a few hours later the Judiciary set the hearing for September 21 at 10:00 am
Previously, the Congress of the Republic, with 94 votes in favor, 14 against and 8 abstentions, approved the motion of censure presented by the Avanza bench against Geiner Alvarado as a result of the investigations carried out in the Prosecutor’s Office.
In said initiative that was presented against the now former minister, it was argued that the official should leave office by alleged commission of illicit acts in the form of “fraudulent public tenders”, with which he would have granted the good pro of public works to companies that did not have the requirements demanded by law. In addition, they indicate that he addressed companies with which he would have negotiated “under the table”.
As recalled, the thesis of the Public Ministry maintains that Alvarado would have been part of a criminal organization within the Ministry of Housing, which would be led by the President of the Republic, peter castle.
