The former candidate for the presidency of Peru, referred to the Congress of the Republic and questioned its actions against the project to advance the elections for this 2023.
“We are going to bring in the Aliens Police to do their job. If you want to work, go somewhere else. We are not going to allow that here. I assure you that with the troops and calm we will be relentless so that they do not return, “said the mayor, according to a clip shared by the Municipality.
The unexpected procedure was carried out due to the “complaints” of the residents of the Cooperativa Huancayo area, as far as the Soria team arrived together with that of the district police unit, under the charge of Commissioner Eduardo Adolfo Morales.
The commune reported that “several women of foreign nationality” were transferred to the jurisdiction’s police station, and announced “that these operations will be carried out frequently.” The images of the intervened women were disseminated on social networks, despite their condition of vulnerability.
For this reason, the Ombudsman published a statement in which it urged to fight “against citizen insecurity in strict respect for the rights of all people, without discrimination or stigmatization of any kind.”

“Sex workers are one of the most marginalized, stigmatized and abused groups of women, a situation worsens if they are migrants, young people or minors, even worse when in many cases they are victims of trafficking or sexual exploitation” , added the agency.
In this sense, the Police and other entities “must reinforce their commitment to the protection of human rights, avoiding exposing them to any type of public exhibition that threatens their dignity.”

Jorge Chávez Cresta assured that, however, the refusal of Congress to approve the advancement of the elections for this year, as the scenario should be analyzed.
“Unfortunately, sex workers have no fixed place and have to be on street corners. I believe that there is still no municipality that can solve this type of situation. That the mayor only says ‘this is bad, it offends the families, we kick them out of here, period’ rather generates more stigma,” the activist told Infobae.

“There are people who force some to practice prostitution, they should be intervened,” he noted. According to the Human Trafficking Division of the Police, the mafias can bring up to 80 foreigners into the country a day to sexually exploit them.
“They don’t care about the girls. I have found several very young women consuming drugs, even sick. They are not interested in anything as long as they stop them in a corner and start charging. I bring her because she has a vagina, period, they think. And the younger, the better. The only profile is that: that she has a vagina and that she is young, ”said Ángela Villón, president of the Miluska Vida y Dignidad Association.
In a report published by this outlet, Villón added that these criminal organizations can invest from 2,000 to 2,500 soles in transportation, food and lodging for the girls, but they enslave them with debts of up to 15,000 dollars. “It is a debt that they never finish paying. They keep charging them and they keep charging them. That’s how they keep them for years, ”she remarked.
