The Peruvian ambassador to the OAS resigns after Castillo’s announcement
The representative of Peru to the Organization of American States (OAS), Harold Forsyth, resigned this Wednesday due to the decision of his country’s president, Pedro Castillo, to dissolve Congress and convene a national emergency government.
“I cannot, for moral and professional reasons, have any connection with a regime that works based on decrees,” the ambassador said at a meeting of the OAS Permanent Council in Washington.
Forsyth’s resignation follows the resignations of Peru’s Ministers of Economy, Foreign Relations, Justice and Labor. In statements to EFE, Forsyth assured that Castillo is now leading a “dictatorship” and that he decided to resign so as not to endorse a “rupture of the constitutional order.”
“It is a government that is constituted outside the law, the Constitution and in open violation of the rule of law,” said the one who has been ambassador to the inter-American organization until today.
