Mayor's bodyguard punches, threatens to kill journalist
The journalist told IPYS that the attack may be in reprisal for an article published on 6 January about the detention of Salazar Mezarina's brother-in-law, Wilson Valcázar Piña, accused of selling drugs. According to the police report, the house where the drugs were found belongs to the mayor. The article also mentioned that, many years ago, the mayor, who is a lawyer, defended Valcázar Piña when he was accused of drug trafficking.
Azalde filed a complaint with Casma's police.
