Martín Vizcarrá lost the second political trial that was held against him.

After being dismissed by Congress this Monday, the president of Peru, Martín Vizcarra, declared that he had “a clear conscience.”

“I leave the government palace as I entered two years and eight months ago, with my head held high,” he said.

Vizcarra succumbed to the second impeachment against him that is held in Peru in just two months, after managing to get out of the first, opened by an alleged crime of influence peddling.

And although it seemed that the motion would not have the necessary support this time either, different reports in local media in recent weeks in relation to alleged corruption by Vizcarra ended up swinging the balance.
