Betssy Chávez is being investigated for her participation in Pedro Castillo’s coup.
The former congresswoman and former official of the government of Pedro Castillo, Betssy Chávez requested that the amount that the Judicial Power imposed on her be reduced as a guarantee. The former premier pointed out that she makes this request since her current income is not the same as what she received some time ago. Of the S / 100,000 that the authority imposed on her, she has only asked to deliver S / 10,000, barely 10% of the initial amount.

“I have attended each of the statements to which I have been called. We have presented in our appeal a decrease with respect to the bond because I do not receive what was before,” Chávez said during a hearing of the Supreme Court that evaluated the appeal after the refusal of preventive detention against him. She indicated that for the moment she is putting her schedules and work activities in order.
It should be remembered that Chávez has not been the only exile of Pedro Castillo who will have to pay a bond. Former Minister Willy Huerta and the former head of Mincetur, Roberto Sánchez, must pay 80,000 and 50,000 soles respectively. The latter has requested that the amount be reduced to five thousand soles while the former head of the Interior has requested that the assigned amount be “exonerated and/or prudently reduced”.

This would have been used as a reason to point out that there is no possibility of him leaving the national territory. “I have always been very involved in the academic subject,” said the accused of allegedly having plagiarized her thesis.
