In a series of messages shared on social networks, Pedro Castillo said Monday that he has not resigned from his position as president of Peru and rejected the call for new elections proposed by the president who replaces him, Dina Boluarte.

Through his Twitter account, Castillo shared a letter in which he affirms that he has been “humiliated, incommunicado, mistreated and kidnapped”in reference to the preventive detention that weighs against him when being investigated for the crime of “rebellion”.

He asked Peruvians not to fall into the “dirty game of new elections” which, he stated, is a “strategy of the right-wing Peruvian political forces.”

Castillo was removed by Congress from Peru last December 7 through a presidential vacancy motion for “moral incapacity.”
