During the weekend, videos were broadcast in which a neighbor of Miraflores identified as Stefano Orlandini launching threats and racist insults at agents of the National Police of Peru (PNP) and troops of serenity during an intervention. After the identification of the subject, the Municipality of Miraflores announced that the inspection staff of said district has imposed a fine of one UIT (S /. 4,600).
During a meeting with the press, the Miraflores citizen security manager, Abdul Miranda |, confirmed that the sanction was made official around noon. “They have not received us within the department, only the concierge has received the notification, but (the subject) is already notified that he is sanctioned”, added. The fine responds to municipal ordinance No. 437 / MM, which “promotes respect for equality and prohibits all forms of discrimination in the district of Miraflores.”
The incident recorded in block 3 of Lord Cochrane Street, originated after complaints from residents of the area about alleged social gatherings in a house where, in addition, there was too much noise. The images recorded that upon the arrival of the municipal authorities, Stéfano Orlandini was found on the outskirts of his house with a motorist who handed him a bag. The serenazgo staff rebuked him for being out during curfew to which he responded violently.
“You have no idea who my family is, funny. Give me your badge right now. Do you want me to record you?“He says at first to the serenazgo and then pushes him and then runs towards the door of his home. “You don’t have a right to tackle me. You have disrespected me in every way. You broke my bottle. I did not do anything and my bottle has broken”He yelled at the officers as he pointed to the serenity that had stopped him in the beginning.
The municipal agent prevented him from dodging the intervention and detained him in the street where he continued to insult and threaten the authorities and then carry out threats and racist attacks. “I’m going to take you to the police station and I’m going to trash you. I’m going to leave you on the street more than you already are. Do you think that you are the same as me? Do you think you are the same as me, compadre? I’m going to make you get fired from your job, you’re going to stay on the street for who you are. Look at your face what you are. I’m going to starve you. You will remember me”Shouted the intervened subject for not respecting the curfew.
Repeatedly, the subject pointed out that his family consisted of several lawyers and he resisted being taken to the police station until his father appeared.
PRONUNCIATION OF MINCUL
After the dissemination of the case, the culture Ministry (Mincul) showed his condemnation in the face of the obvious almost discrimination. “The day before, a video was released showing a class situation and discrimination due to economic condition and contempt to the detriment of municipal guards and police officers in the district of Miraflores.”

Along these lines, they called on the competent authorities to sanction in an effective and energetic manner, in accordance with the Law, this type of action. “Let’s build a better country together, without discrimination”.
