Strengthening military and police courts in Perú

Shortly after the Peruvian Constitutional Court reaffirmed the validity and competence of military courts to try offences committed in the performance of official duties by military and national police personnel, the military jurisdiction’s presence in Peru was expanded.

As el Peruano reported in September, here, General Juan Pablo Ramos Espinoza argued in favor of this expansion and the need to allocate more resources to Peruvian military courts before the Budget Committee of the Peruvian Congress. With additional funding, new projects would be executed; among them, implementation and/or improvement of courtrooms, as well as the modernization of technological tools, equipment, and training programs, and the construction of new headquarters in Cusco and Lambayeque.
