Peru's Congress approves bill removing former president's immunity

Peru's Congress voted early Monday morning to approve a bill removing former President Pedro Castillo's immunity, authorizing the Supreme Court to prosecute him for the alleged crime of rebellion. Castillo was removed from office last Wednesday after a majority of 101 members in the 130-person legislative body voted to impeach the former leader. The former president is currently under a seven-day preliminary arrest ordered by Peru’s Supreme Court.
