"We will not rest, nor will we stop working, until we fully identify those responsible and apply the rigor that corresponds in accordance with the law," he expressed.
Likewise, the top official said it should be clear that the police institution —which is fundamental to the democratic system and citizens— cannot be stigmatized.
"This situation will not continue nor can it continue any longer (...). This crisis scenario must be transformed into an opportunity to lay the foundations for the strengthening of the Police in order to guarantee effectiveness and regain closeness with the citizenry," he emphasized.
Mr. Sagasti also affirmed that this context demands the commitment of the political class, so that it learns to resolve differences and conflicts properly —as the country deserves and demands— with the aim of reaching consensus to establish the minimum conditions for calm and fulfill the task of achieving development.
"We must avoid at all costs that police actions become resource, as a consequence of our little capacity for political dialogue and inability to understand one another properly in peace," he underlined.
