Approved. With 19 votes in favor, two against and two abstentions, the Subcommittee on Constitutional Accusations today approved the class action lawsuit against Podemos MP Digna Calle for the alleged crime of leaving her office after a seven-month stay in the United States.
A week ago, the working group reported receipt of two complaints from MPs Kelly Portalatino from Perú Libre and Roselli Amuruz from Avanza País.
On this occasion, the chair of the subcommittee, Lady Camones, said that the two complaints against Calle would be combined into one to produce a single qualification report, which was adopted in the vote today.
The admitted complaint numbered 398 and 399 will be forwarded to the Permanent Commission for approval there.
If given the green light there, the report will be sent back to the Subcommittee on Allegations to elect the delegate who will be responsible for producing a final report.
Camones told Perú21 that the subcommittee “will have 15 days to prepare the final report” if the complaint is approved by the Permanent Commission.
The first constitutional complaint, signed with the number 318, was filed by the deputy of Peru Libre, Kelly Portalatino, for alleged violation of articles 92 and 93 of the Magna Carta and for the alleged crime of abandonment of office referred to in article 380 of the Penal Code.
Roselli Amuruz of Avanza País filed the second complaint, number 399, for alleged violation of Article 92 of the Constitution and for alleged offenses of abuse of office illegally linked to the supply of goods and services and for waiver of prosecution, stipulated in the Articles 376-A and 380 of the Penal Code.
On January 20, since his departure for the United States, Calle participated virtually in some plenary sessions of that country.
However, when he returned to the country last week, he said he would not attend the meetings in person.
Camones: “If Calle’s complaint is approved in the Permanent Commission, we will have 15 days to prepare the final report.”
