Crisis in Peru: Peru’s new president is under investigation as political unrest grows

Peru’s political crisis deepened on Tuesday as a police officer died torched in his car after 17 civilians were killed in protests a day earlier, all triggered by the ouster of president Pedro Castillo last month.

Amid the violence, Peru’s attorney general said on Tuesday it was launching a preliminary investigation against President Dina Boluarte, Prime Minister Alberto Otarola and the country’s defence and interior ministers on charges of genocide, homicide and serious injuries.

Since protests began in early December, at least 40 people have died in the unrest, while hundreds more have been injured.

In a statement on Tuesday, Peru’s ombudsman office urged peaceful protests as well as for prosecutors to fully investigate the deaths.

Tuesday marked the start of a three-day mourning period in parts of southern Peru. The prime minister also announced a three-day overnight curfew in Puno, aimed at quelling the violence.

Officer ‘burned alive’

The slain officer’s vehicle came under attack early Tuesday morning by “unknown persons” in the city of Juliaca, located in the southern Puno region, with another officer suffering multiple head injuries, according to the Interior Ministry.

Raul Alfaro, a senior police commander, told reporters that a mob “ambushed” the police officer’s vehicle, and then proceeded to beat him and other officers while disarming them.

“They burned him alive,” Alfaro said.

Police have launched an investigation to identify those responsible, he said. An Interior Ministry official said earlier on Tuesday that an autopsy was being conducted on the body of the officer, identified as Jose Luis Soncco.

Another police officer suffered multiple head injuries during the attack, according to the ministry.

The office noted the “extreme violence” of Soncco’s death, claiming he was tortured before he died, while also condemning an arson attack on a congressman’s Puno residence with family members still inside.

Earlier Tuesday, Otarola appeared in the opposition-dominated Congress in a bid to formally kick-start the new government, asking lawmakers to approve a vote of confidence for Boluarte’s cabinet, which is needed to lead a new government.



Peru’s national prosecutor’s office has begun investigating President Dina Boluarte for genocide, it said, after protests against her which have left 40 people dead in the past month.

The investigation will also focus on Prime Minister Alberto Otarola as well as the interior and defence ministers, the prosecutor’s office said on Twitter on Tuesday. 

The investigation is for alleged crimes of “genocide, aggravated homicide and serious injuries” during the anti-government demonstrations in the regions of Apurimac, La Libertad, Puno, Junin, Arequipa and Ayacucho.

Tuesday also marked the start of a three-day mourning period in parts of southern Peru, including Puno, after 18 people were killed on Monday in the most lethal day of protests since the ousted president Pedro Castillo was ousted by lawmakers after he illegally sought to dissolve Congress.

Since protests began in early December, at least 40 people have died in the unrest, while hundreds more have been injured.

In a statement on Tuesday, Peru’s ombudsman office urged peaceful protests as well as for prosecutors to fully investigate the deaths.

Prime Minister Otarola appeared in Congress on Tuesday, asking lawmakers to approve a vote of confidence for the cabinet of President Boluarte, which is needed to lead a new government. Debate continued on the measure as of Tuesday evening.

Otarola blamed organised attackers financed by “dark” money for those killed on Monday. Beyond the deaths, another 68 civilians and 75 police officers were reported injured, according to the ombudsman.

Three-day curfew 

Later on Tuesday, Otarola announced a three-day overnight curfew in Puno, aimed at quelling the violence. Footage from local media showed looting of Puno businesses on Monday night, while Juliaca’s airport remained shut on Tuesday.

Protesters demand the resignation of Boluarte, the dissolution of Congress, changes to the constitution and Castillo’s release.

Castillo has been ordered to remain in pre-trial detention while he is investigated for fomenting rebellion, a charge he denies. 

On Twitter, Castillo wrote that those killed for “defending the country from the coup dictatorship” will never be forgotten.

Later this week, an Inter-American Commission on Human Rights mission will visit Peru to assess the situation. The United Nations has meanwhile urged respect for human rights and offered to mediate the crisis.

Triple-jabbed Canadian reporter slurs words, nearly collapses on live TV

Editor’s note: This article was updated on January 9 at 5:33 p.m. ET to include a statement put out by the journalist wherein she insisted the COVID-19 vaccine was not a factor in the event. 

EDMONTON, Alberta (LifeSiteNews) — A young Canadian TV journalist appeared to lose consciousness live on air before the camera cut to the studio.  

video of Sunday’s incident has now been widely shared online and shows CTV News Edmonton reporter Jessica Robb suddenly begin to stammer during her report and forget what to say.  

Robb then appeared to totter on her feet, as if she were about to collapse. However, the camera quickly cut to the studio before anything else was shown. 

After struggling to continue her report, Robb warned her co-worker Nahreman Issa back at the studio, saying “Sorry, Nahreman, I’m not feeling very well right now and I’m about to …”  

At this point, the CTV News anchor said, “Okay, we’ll come back to you. Right now, we’ll make sure that, Jessica, you are doing okay.”

CTV News later on Sunday wrote in a tweet that Robb was “feeling better” after the incident. 

“Thanks to everyone who inquired about our reporter who became ill during the 6 p.m. News. Jessica Robb is feeling better and is now resting. 

Later on Monday, CTV Edmonton put out another statement on Twitter, this time reportedly from Robb herself, in which she stated she will “not share private medical information publicly,” but that she can confirm “that the situation was in no way related to the COVID-19 vaccine.”

Speculation about whether the vaccine may be responsible for the event had arisen after social media users discovered that Robb had stated on her Twitter account in April, after testing positive for COVID, that she had had three of the COVID jabs.

She tweeted: “Consider this my official out of (the physical) office,” with a photo of a positive COVID test.  

“Feeling very lucky to be vaxxed x3 and that I started isolating as soon as symptoms started.”

Such speculation around the COVID vaccine has been heightened in recent times as incidents of professional athletes, actors and singers, TV news anchors, and reporters having on or off-air sudden medical incidents, either heart attacks or strokes, have seemingly become more commonplace. Unfortunately, many of these incidents have resulted in death.  

Dr. Peter McCullough has said that the COVID jabs have caused a wave of “vaccine-induced myocarditis.”  

The recent collapse of 24-year-old Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin has led many experts like McCullough to speculate as to the link between the jabs and people collapsing.  

McCullough noted in an October 18 article that studies show that cases of myocarditis have gone up from about 4 per million to approximately 23,256/million among people aged 13 to 18 alone since the introduction of the COVID jabs. 

Indeed, many doctors and scientists anticipated a sharp increase in deaths after vaccine distribution.  

Geert Vanden Bossche, a former senior officer of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, made waves in 2021 after issuing an open letter as well as video which warned of a  “global catastrophe without equal” over the mass acceptance and administering of the experimental COVID-19 jabs.  

Dr. Joseph Mercola recently noted that recent research suggests that the COVID jabs are linked to an increase in heart issues, and cancer, along with a decline in one’s lifespan.
