Peruvian Press Council warns that the Executive's bill is an attack against citizenship

"The Peruvian Press Council (CPP, by its Spanish acronym) assured on June 20 that the bill that penalizes the dissemination of reserved information on judicial cases is an attack against the citizenship.

The institution warned that, under such a law, judges, prosecutors and police officers who leak information to the press before a process reaches the oral trial stage would be sanctioned.

For the CPP, this is an 'obscurantist measure.'

The entity pointed out that, if approved by Congress, the Executive's bill will deprive Peruvians of information on corruption investigations, including those against President Pedro Castillo, former Minister of Transportation and Communications Juan Silva, former Secretary General of the Presidency Bruno Pacheco and Fray Vásquez, the President's nephew."
