King of Spain Visits Supreme Court and Congress of Peru

LIMA – Spain’s King Felipe VI received the Grand Cross of Honor of the Chamber in the Peruvian Congress on Monday, and completed the first day of his state visit in Peru meeting with several representatives of the Supreme Court.

While Queen Letizia went to the Ministry of Women and Vulnerable Populations to learn about their work assisting victims of sexual violence, carried out by more than 330 Women Emergency Centers (CEM) throughout the country, Felipe VI addressed the Congress of the Republic, where he was received by the president, Daniel Salaverry.

In addition to receiving the highest decoration of this House, the monarch held a meeting with a dozen members of Parliament, who presented their respective views on the future of Spanish-Peruvian cooperation and on the preparations for the commemorations of the bicentennial of the independence of their country.

From the Congress of the Republic, the King walked to the headquarters of the Supreme Court, where its new president, Victor Prado Saldarriaga awaited him. Saldarriaga was elected to the post in July after the resignation of his predecessor Duberli Rodriguez, due to a corruption scandal unveiled in the highest levels of the judiciary.

There he also attended a meeting with half a dozen judges of the Supreme Court, who explained to the head of the Spanish State the operation of the Peruvian Judicial Power.
