Peru: HROs 'Hounded'

Miguel Jugo, executive director of APRODEH, has accused the government of using its 'random' auditing programme to harass non-governmental organisations which somehow cross a line and become a nuisance to the regime. I have no idea as to the truth of these claims (although it wouldn't altogether surprise me if they were true, and in any case, Peruvian bureaucracy is an effective weapon with which to harass anyone, honestly), but I wonder if they will unleash another backlash against APRODEH.

You´re right when you say that peruvian "bureaucrazy" is an effective weapon with which to harass anyone, honestly I think so too.
