In a letter, ex-Army Forces officers echoed right-wing candidate Keiko Fujimori's unfounded accusations of electoral fraud in the June 6 election runoff.
On Sunday, Peru's General Attorney's Office launched an investigation against over 60 former high-rank officers from the Armed Forces for alleged rebellion, sedition, and conspiracy, since they called for a Coup to avoid the inauguration of leftist President-elect Pero Castillo.
The meme reads, "Lima's San Martin square is full of people supporting Pedro Castillo's victory against Keiko Fujimori's attempt to disregard the results."
In a letter, ex-Army Forces officers echoed right-wing candidate Keiko Fujimori's unfounded accusations of fraud while urging for a coup as the solution to the country's electoral crisis.
Fujimori and the letter's signatories disregarded national electoral authorities and international observers' reports, which discarded electoral fraud or significant irregularity in the Jun. 6 presidential election runoff.
After the letter became public, Peru's Interim President Francisco Sagasti denounced the move as an attack on democracy while ratifying Armed Forces' neutrality.
Will the call for a coup d'état in Peru take shape?
