Peru’s Prime Minister, Ana Jara, ruled out the possibility that the National Intelligence Directorate (DINI) has been involved in the alleged espionage activities or practice of spying on politicians and former government officials.

At a press conference joined by DINI representatives, Jara said the pictures published by the local media do not match the procedures followed by intelligence service against drug trafficking and terrorism.

“It is wrong to link DINI with these reprehensible actions; since its inauguration, the government has not used such methods to know the agenda of politicians or government officials,” she noted.

She also expressed, on behalf of President Ollanta Humala, her total and vigorous rejection of these actions, which are unacceptable in a democratic state.
