Former Peruvian president Pedro Castillo, saw his jail term extended to 18 months by a judge on Friday, giving more time for prosecutors to make a case against the impeached president.
A 30 day state of emergency has also been issued for all of Peru, due to large protest.
Protesters are demanding that Castillo be released from Prison, and claim he is still the president of the country. Castillo was impeached after he illegally tried to dissolve the countries congress when he was being investigated for fraud.
Castillo has rejected the accusations against him, saying he is being “unjustly and arbitrarily detained” at a police facility near the capital, Lima.
