The measure, which will be valid for 30 days, allows the intervention of the armed forces to enforce order
The Peruvian government declared a state of emergency on Saturday night in the capital Lima and several other regions of Peru due to the ongoing protests with a central demand for the resignation of President Dina Bolluarte, in which at least 42 people have been killed in the past five weeks.
The measure, which will be in effect for 30 days, allows the intervention of the armed forces to enforce order and includes the suspension of constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms, including the freedoms of movement of persons, assembly and the inviolability of private residence. A decree containing it was published on Saturday night (local time; Sunday morning Greek time) in the official Government Gazette.
