Dina Boluarte is being investigated for alleged illicit enrichment, as a result of the use of Rolex watches that she did not declare in her assets.

The house of the president of Peru, Dina Boluarte, was raided around midnight this Friday by a team of prosecutors and agents of the National Police as part of a preliminary investigation opened against the ruler for the alleged commission of the crime of illicit enrichment. .

In images shown by local media, a group of agents can be seen breaking the lock on the main door of Boluarte's home in the Lima district of Surquillo after not being attended to when knocking repeatedly on the house.

According to a police document, about 40 agents and prosecutors intervene in the investigation "in order to search the home and seize the Rolex watches" whose origin and purchase Boluarte has avoided specifying.

Local media reported that the ruler is not at home and that only one of her children was there, although one of the president's lawyers later arrived, while the Public Ministry has not yet offered any formal information about the intervention. .

According to the RPP radio station, the raid for seizure registration purposes was approved by Supreme Judge Juan Carlos Checkley after a request presented by the Attorney General, Juan Carlos Villena, as part of the investigation of the alleged commission of the crime of illicit enrichment, in the form of omission to record statements in documents.

In recent days, the Presidency of Peru and the Public Ministry have maintained a controversy regarding the proceedings initiated as part of the investigation opened by the ruler's alleged failure to declare her luxury watches.
