Peru President reaffirms commitment to fight against corruption

13:00 | Lima, Jun. 7.

President Martin Vizcarra on Friday reaffirmed his administration's commitment to fighting corruption, within the legal and constitutional framework, and strictly respecting the separation of powers.

"On this occasion, we reiterate our efforts in the combat against the cancer of corruption. It is a moral duty, as well as our responsibility (…)," the Head of State expressed. 

According to the Commander-in-Chief, corruption equates to stealing from the poorest citizens, as the resources are diverted, and the services offered to people in need are affected. 

"Inequality, corruption, and impunity are scourges that have always stalked us and hindered our development possibilities," the top official noted.

Likewise, the statesman underlined each citizen has a sacred duty to the nation, which consists in continuing to act firmly and jointly against the enemies that intend to destroy the State's foundations

In his opinion, the Inca country has had just a few chances to change the course of its history, adding the sacred duty to the homeland includes acting responsibly, honestly, and with service vocation. 

"It implies undertaking efforts to make Peru a safe, great, and fair country for everyone," President Vizcarra said. 


The event took place at Lima's Bolognesi Roundabout.
