On January 11, the Peruvian security forces fired 36 pellets at him during demonstrations in the city of Cusco.
On Wednesday, the mother of Rosalino Flores held a press conference to demand justice for the death of her son, who died as a result of actions that the Army and the Police carried out under the orders of President Dina Boluarte.
The tweet reads, "In Peru the brutal police repression continues. In Andahuaylas, at the Juan Espinoza school, the dictatorship police beat girls, adolescents, and mothers. Although the violation of human rights is permanent, the fight continues. Dina Boluarte murderess."
"This investigation will be long because the authorities are not collaborating," the lawyer said and denounced that the Cusco authorities were investigating the case as if it had only been a "minor injuries" incident.
During the massive protests against the Boluarte regime, Flores was hit by a burst of pellets that were fired a few meters away. The security cameras in the area recorded a policeman shooting at the young Peruvian.
After being shot, Flores was taken to the intensive care unit of the Antonio Lorena Hospital in Cusco. Later, due to the seriousness of his injuries, he was transferred to the Arzobispo Loayza hospital in Lima.
