Quiñonez, for his part, has claimed to have in his possession a letter from Guzmán’s wife Elena Iparraguirre authorizing and accrediting her to make such an application. The State Ministry has announced that it will evaluate the case.

In addition, the company has reported that the autopsy of Guzmán’s body has been completed and that, according to the protocol, “the cause of death is bilateral pneumonia caused by a pathological agent”.

The Presidency of the Council of Ministers (PCM) has decided on the fate of the remains of the Leader of the Shining Path and has stated that the Ministry of Public Affairs will decide what will ultimately be done with the remains.

“The PCM said that the public prosecutor’s office is responsible for investigating the fate of the deceased terrorist leader Abimael Guzmán,” said the agency, which expressed its “full support” for the measures taken by the public prosecutor’s office.
