Peru: Protesters decry alleged judicial corruption after audio evidence surfaces

Protesters took to the streets of Lima, Wednesday, to decry the country's judiciary following allegations of corruption at the highest levels of the country’s justice system.

Protesters carried banners and chanted as they marched from Plaza San Martin to the doorstep of the Superior Court of Lima.

The protest came after a group of investigative journalists, IDL-Reporters, published audio recordings of phone conversations which are said to implicate senior members of the judiciary in a series of corruption cases.

The judges are now subject to a state investigation opened on July 9 by Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra.
