State of emergency in San Juan de Lurigancho and SMP: until when it was extended and what restrictions will be lifted
San Juan de Lurigancho and San Martin de Porres, districts of the eastern and northern zones of Lima, respectively, will continue under the declaration of the state of emergency by order of the Peruvian government, in order for the Police to continue receiving the support of the Armed forces for the control of internal order, within the framework of the fight against national and foreign crime.
This was announced - on the morning of this Wednesday, November 15 - by the Minister of the Interior, Vicente Romero, after specifying that the extension of the exceptional regime will be 60 calendar days. Both capital districts were under a state of emergency since last Friday, September 29, after the official announcement Supreme Decree No. 105-2023-PCM.
According to the owner of the Ministry of Interiorthe measure 'gave results' and has been reflected in the fact that crime decreased 'by approximately 30%', with respect to the crimes of robberies, robberies and homicides in some parts of the country.
In that first declaration of the state of emergency for San Juan de Lurigancho, San Martín de Porres and seven other districts of the province of Sullana, it was specified that it would last for 60 days. The provision expired this November 18, so the Executive power decided to extend it for the same period, to continue with preventive actions against crime.
Of the restrictions ordered in the first emergency declarationthe most striking and questioned was the prohibition of carrying out social events and shows between midnight and four in the morning the next day.
This restriction caused restobars, nightclubs and nightclubs in general would be forced to close their doors, at the latest, at eleven at night, a time when they begin to receive more customers in search of music, dancing and drinks. Even the owners of these establishments in San Juan de Lurigancho They came out to protest to make the measure more flexible.
With the new expansion of state of emergency For these two districts, Romero announced that, among the new measures that will take effect from Sunday, November 19, social events and shows will no longer be prohibited during the hours between 00:00 and 04:00 hours.
“(The figures) have given us a clear understanding that it did work and continues to work. There will be an extension for 60 more days, but the restriction from 00:00 to 04:00 will be lifted, at the request of the mayors and due to the analysis carried out by the National Police“said the minister.
It was learned that the lifting of this restriction occurs at the request of the mayors of San Juan de Lurigancho and San Martín de Porres and the proximity of the celebrations for Christmas and New Year.
The Executive recently reported that, except for the lifting of that prohibition, the state of emergency It will be carried out as always and, even, with a greater military presence in both districts.
It is worth remembering that San Juan de Lurigancho entered a state of emergency, after three explosives were detonated in less than 72 hours, in apparent cases of charging quotas from merchants and businessmen. Another reason for declaring this district this way was that there was a notable expansion of the prostitutionwhich gave way to crimes such as pimping and human trafficking, mainly by foreign criminals.
In the case of San Martin de Porres, the rates of robberies, assaults and extortions skyrocketed considerably, so it was decided to apply the emergency regime. In this area, criminal gangs also proliferate and profit from the meretrics of Venezuelan citizens and Colombians.
After the publication of the note, it was learned that the Minister of the Interior, Vicente Romero, was censured by a majority vote by the plenary session of the Congress of the Republic. With this, he must present his resignation letter to the president Dina Boluarte, who is in the United States. The legislative decision does not change the announcement of the extension of the state of emergency in any way.
