Lilia Paredes was granted asylum in Mexico, but her husband remained in detention

The family of the ousted Peruvian president, Pedro Castillo, left the country for Mexico, after being granted asylum there.

But President Castillo remains imprisoned in Peru.

The Peruvian Foreign Minister had earlier granted Castillo’s wife and children safe passage from the Mexican Embassy in Lima to the airport.

The Mexican ambassador, in Lima, left with them on the same plane, after the Peruvian authorities ordered him to leave the country within 72 hours.
