Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra on Friday affirmed it is necessary for the Judicial Branch to be in charge of lifting parliamentary immunity of the Congress members, who break the law, in order to prevent delays.
According to the Head of State, said bill is one of the most important political-related proposals
submitted by his administration to Congress.
In this sense, he noted the Executive's proposal on the matter seeks to speed up the process aimed at lifting parliamentary immunity once a legislator has broken the law.
On Thursday, Parliament approved the removal of Donayre from Congress and authorized his detention so he can serve a 5-year sentence ordered by the Judiciary for having stolen fuel from a military unit in Tacna region, while he served as its head in 2006.
