New Peruvian interior minister pledges to fight corruption
font size    

Peru's new Interior Minister Luis Alva on Monday promised what he described as "an implacable fight against corruption" and transparency after being sworn-in by President Alan Garcia, just two days after his predecessor resigned amid a corruption scandal.

"Citizens' security is fundamental, which will be our main and first concern," Alva said. "And there is no doubt that I will implacably fight corruption."

Alva said that he would form committees to guarantee the legality of all purchases to avoid the situation like the allegedly illegal purchase of 469 squad cars.

Former Interior Minister, Pilar Mazzetti, resigned on Saturday following growing criticism over questions over the ministry's purchase of the squad cars at inflated prices. The allegation is now being investigated by Peru's Congress.

Alva, 65, a former deputy from the ruling Peru Aprist Party, also said that he would support a political reform in the ministry.

He worked as cabinet chief and economy and finance minister from 1985-1987, in Garcia's first government.
