Resignation of the intelligence chief
These statements by Boluarte are known one day later of the resignation of the head of the National Intelligence Directorate (DINI)the Colonel Juan Carlos Liendo O’Connorafter the Chairwoman will be shown in disagreement with treating protests as “terrorist insurgency”.
The O’Connor’s designation Last December had generated controversynot just because Boluarte had admitted not knowing who he was and what was his curriculum, but also because he celebrated the “efficiency” of the Army during the protests.
Between the reasons O’Connor cited in his resignation letter stand out “serious complications to fulfill the assigned functions according to law”.
Hours earlier, during an interview with Radio Programas, o’connor stated that he would submit his resignation due to clear discrepancies with Boluarte and insisted that there were “terrorist organizations” behind the protestsalthough without identifying them.
In this sense, he remarked that, according to the definition of terrorism present in Peruvian legislation, “The actions that have been carried out in the demonstrations show acts of terrorism” and despite the fact that “legitimate demands” may exist there is “planning and objectives from clandestine organizations”.
