Peruvian prosecutor opens investigation into President Castillo over alleged plagiarism

He added that the case falls under the responsibility of the prosecutor Juan Ramon Tantaleanof the Joint Provincial Prosecutor’s Office of the Tacabamba District, in the Northern Province of Chota, where the President is from.

The master’s thesis by Castillo and Paredes, teachers by profession, was based on a study of learning in a school in their native region and is entitled “Gender equality and significant learning in the field of social personnel in students of the IV cycle of educational institution No. 10465 Puña-Tacabamba-Chota”.

However, the Panorama television program denounced last Sunday that it had found 54% coincidences with other authors, not mentioned in the bibliography, among other irregularities in academic work.

In a statement on Wednesday, the head of state denied “any irregular act” in his dissertation, assuring that the copy presented in Panorama “lacks legitimacy” because there was no seal on it confirming that it was the original.

“I have not copied or attributed authorship to third parties, just as they are irresponsibly trying to make the public believe,” he noted before assuring the complaint “has political overtones and is part of a destabilizing plan“, in addition to lamenting “the collusion of certain power groups and coup sectors.”

Castillo also said that “some” media they insist on tarnishing his honor and undermining the legitimacy bestowed on him by the Peruvian people in 2021 in a transparent and democratic election supported by national and international organizations.
