The fiscal Johana Velasco Bardalesfrom the second office of the Sixth Criminal Corporate Prosecutor’s Office of Cercado de Lima, opened an investigation against Keiko Fujimori and another 25 people for the crimes of sedition, conspiracy to rebel, slanderous denunciation and malfeasance. This is because all the defendants insisted on the theory, already disrupted by the Public Ministry, of “electoral fraud” in the 2021 general elections and that they gave Pedro Castillo Terrones as the legitimate winner.
For this continuous call to ignore the official results, The Prosecutor’s Office has included the last Wednesday, March 9, in the investigation of Lourdes Flores Nano, the former legal personera of the Fujimori party Milagros Takayama Jiménez, the congresswoman Rosangella Barbarán, the Aprista Nidia Vilchez, Miguel Torres Morales, Javier Villa Stein and the sentenced man in the shadows of the last fujimorista campaign, Vladimiro Montesinos Torres. Also included in the Francisco Baldeón Vellón case are the Muñiz and Rubio Leguía Study (which supported by challenging the voting records), Julio Castiglioni Ghiglino, Rafael López Aliaga (far-right political leader), César Acuña Peralta, the Nobel Prize winner of literature Mario Vargas Llosahis son Álvaro Vargas Llosa, Dionisio Romero Paoletti, Daniel Córdova Cayo and Jorge del Castillo.
Also included are Luis Galarreta Velarde, legislators Norma Yarrow Lumbreras, Hernando Guerra-García, Jorge Montoya Manrique Adriana Tudela Gutiérrez as well as Alan Kessel del Río and Mario Hart del Águila and Alejandra Baigorria.

Consulted by this newspaper, the constitutional lawyer Victor Garcia Takes expressed his disagreement with the opening of the investigation:
“The Prosecutor’s Office cannot be a table of parties where any complaint is received and addressed. First, an adequate qualification must be made, then this must be in accordance with reality. The truth is that in these months the people who are being investigated, whether to our liking or not, have not generated acts of collective violence aimed at deposing the legitimately elected authority of the day. There were criticisms, complaints and claims for the electoral result, but beyond that no”.
Likewise, he pointed out that “no mobilization, in addition, such as that of the vacancy or seen on social networks against peter castle, could be considered as sedition because there is a right to citizen protest. These protests have been civic and peaceful acts that cannot be compared to sedition. Sedition was what Antauro Humala did, who took over a police station and murdered six police officers and declared that his mission was to depose then President Toledo. An opposition march and claim against the government cannot be considered a crime of sedition, which requires collective violence to overthrow an authority elected by popular vote.”
