17:10 | Madrid (Spain), Jan. 3.
A group of Peruvian citizens —who currently reside in Spain— gathered at La Puerta del Sol Square in Madrid on Wednesday to demand the resignation of Attorney General Pedro Chavarry
in the South American country.
It should be noted a national march will take place in Lima and diverse regions of the Inca country to defend justice and democracy, as well as to protest against corruption, due to a crisis existing within the Public Ministry caused by Chavarry.
Removal and reinstatement
As is known, the Brazilian construction giant admitted to having paid millions in bribes to government officials in Peru, in order to secure public-works contracts.
As a result, Odebrecht
benefited from over US$143 million between 2005 and 2014 in Peru, according to the U.S. Justice Department.
