Peru: MLA accused of raping woman in Congress

LIMA ( Associated Press) — Peru’s women’s ministry confirmed that a congressman from the opposition Alliance for Progress party was condemned for sexual violations at her aid program by a parliamentary worker who accused the lawmaker of harassing her at congressional facilities. Imposed.

In a statement released Wednesday night, the ministry indicated it had “provided emotional support and legal attention” to the woman who “reported to be a victim of rape by Congressman Freddie Diaz Monago.” They said they are treating the victim and asked prosecutors “to act quickly in the matter”.

The woman, a parliamentary activist, sought help through the ministry’s national program Aurora, which was created to help rape victims. She specified that she was raped in one of the Parliament Houses after the MLA had drank on her.

The Speaker of Parliament, Lady Cammons, from the same party as the accused legislator, called for an inquiry into the congressman, and said that Parliament “condemns all forms of acts that threaten the integrity of women and that the prosecution should have all facilities will be provided”. His Alliance for Progress party announced his expulsion.

The Associated Press at this time attempted to contact the lawmaker’s office and his cell phone number to obtain his release, without success.
