The Peruvian capital Lima once again witnessed thousands flooding the streets to slam judicial corruption and demand the closure of Congress on Wednesday.

At least one protester was arrested at the mass rally as police heavily monitored and blocked protesters from reaching the Congress building.

A wave of protests hit the country after a group of investigative journalists published audio recordings of phone conversations, which are said to implicate senior members of the judiciary in a series of corruption cases.

The judges are now subject to a state investigation opened on July 9, by Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra.
