“At the beginning of this campaign it was requested to suspend the competition, it did not progress. At the end of the first round, the indictment was made in advance.

He later added: “Today the government is making a request to Perez to change the look I have had for more than a year, but to make a request for detention, but most absurd of all is the reason he is demanding this change. Mr. He said he realized yesterday that Mickey Torres was supporting the campaign.
Torres was at a press conference with Fujimori and participated publicly in the entire Fursa popular campaign.
Her lawyer, Giuliana Loza, said there was “no legal and factual basis” for the claim. Torres added that “there is a witness in this case, which is not something that has a minimal relationship with those people or the fact that the simulated contributors were questioned.” “Therefore, Ms. Fujimori did not violate any code of conduct.”
For his part, Torres Morales told CNN that the prosecutor’s office had summoned him “at any time” as a witness to allegations of misconduct. He said he collaborated as a witness on “completely and utterly different” issues. He called the lawyer’s request “crazy.”
