The municipal manager of the Municipality of La Victoria Enrique Ocrospoma reported that he was attacked by alleged infiltrators in the commune’s inspection team. On the morning of Friday, December 1, the municipal authority went to the Gamarra commercial emporium, together with police officers, to observe how the street vendors who used gas cylinders were working.

“We wanted to do today, we had already scheduled it with the National Police, the immediate control of the modules that sell gas food, with large balloons. (…) We want to avoid that to avoid a misfortune,” she added.
During this work, he also observed how the inspectors carried out their work. In an interview with ATV Noticias, he said that he found about a hundred employees who were not doing their work and who, on the contrary, were resting. This raised doubts in Ocrospoma, who suspects that many of these people are not really part of the Inspection and Control Management.

He raised this hypothesis after he was attacked by the alleged inspectors, when he decided to withdraw from the Indoamérica park.
“It was a cowardly attack by criminals, who hit from behind and do not show their faces. The curious thing is that they can be covert inspectors (…). There were many auditors who eventually had some complaints related to aspects that they cannot participate in the CAS contest and eventually some who were a few days away from being paid for their service allocation,” Enrique Ocrospoma mentioned.
In that sense, he demanded that the authorities identify the subjects who beat him and prosecute them criminally for causing his injuries. He explained that they wore distinctive vests from the Inspection and Control Management of the La Victoria commune, which he described as serious.

Ocrospoma showed the message in a live interview and highlighted that the phone number code did not come from Peru.
“I want the identification of these criminals because aggressors of this nature are criminals and cowards who must be identified so that the weight of the law falls on them,” he demanded.
After this event, the Municipality of La Victoria issued a statement in which it confirmed that Enrique Ocrospoma reported the attack he suffered to the Apolo police station.
Precisely, in this police unit the necessary procedures have already been initiated to identify the individuals who attacked the municipal authority.
“I do not rule out any possibility that municipal inspectors could be captured. But I can tell you that today there were people who were not from the municipality. “That is very clear,” she indicated.

His suspicions also suggest that the attack he suffered would be related to the CAS contest, opened by the Municipality of La Victoria, to which many inspectors were applying.
“The curious thing is that some landlords, when they show up, or other people, when they show up, have a criminal record and, above all, they do not have secondary school certificates. As you will understand, the Peruvian State cannot hire just anyone. You have to hire people with a minimum profile,” he explained.
He also asked that the mayor of La Victoria, Rubén Cano, remove the inspectors who beat him, as well as those who are related to the collection of quotas in areas of the jurisdiction.
In response to the query related to inspectors of foreign nationality, who would be charging for quotas in Gamarra, Ocrospoma denied that the municipality has hired migrants who do not remain in Peru on a regular basis.
