President of Peru Pedro Castillo went to the office of the Attorney General of the Nation, Patricia Benavides, on Monday, Sept. 5, to respond on the alleged crimes of personal concealment and criminal organization that arose from the dismissal of the former Minister of the Interior Mariano Gonzalez.

Castillo also had to answer questions about the bidding by the state-owned company Petropéru for the purchase of biodiesel from Heaven Petroleum and about the alleged irregularities in the regulations approved in favor of the district of Anguía in the northern province of Chota, where he is from.

During the hearing, the Attorney General's Office also took part. 

At the exit of the Public Prosecutor's Office, Castillo sent a message to the citizens. 

"We have categorically denied and rejected the accusations," he said, adding that "once the information is gathered in all the investigations," he will go "again to testify."

The President added that he will continue "showing his face" and will attend the summons of the Prosecutor's Office as many times as necessary. He does not want to harm the country and remains firm to lead the destiny of the country.

On his part, Castillo's lawyer, Benji Espinoza, added that Castillo has established that "he is completely innocent of all the charges falsely attributed to him."

Espinoza affirmed that there is "no link to favor the purchase of biodiesel," and that Castillo "does not cover up, did not cover up nor will cover up for anyone" in the case of Mariano González.

González, former Minister of the Interior, accused the Castillo of having fired him to hinder the capture of former Minister Juan Silva and his nephew Fray Vásquez, who are fugitives in the case for the "alleged criminal organization" that the president heads.

Castillo will continue collaborating with the investigations of the Attorney General's Office because he assures he is innocent.
