  • Just hours after being accused herself of corruption, Peru’s attorney general filed charges President Dina Boluarte for the deaths of a couple dozen protestors who were killed during anti-government demonstrations.
  • Attorney General Patricia Benavides brought the charges in a constitutional complaint on Monday, a legal move Boluarte described as “a despicable political maneuver.”
  • Boluarte, the first woman to lead Peru, ascended to the presidency after she successfully formed a coalition with the South American country’s conservative congress.
