The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) reported that during 2023 it carried out decisive actions to put an end to malicious calls made to emergency centers.

As a result of the administrative procedures carried out, 3,534 telephone lines were suspended and 160 sanctions were issued, of which 60 constituted fines, 99 reprimands and one definitive cancellation of the line.

It should be remembered that malicious communications negatively impact the proper functioning of emergency centers, causing delays in responses and, as a result, endangering people’s lives.

The MTC applies sanctions for those who participate in such misconduct, with fines that vary between S/ 2,475 (0.5 UIT) and S/ 19,800 (4 UIT), and even the definitive suspension of service in cases of recidivism. These measures apply directly to the owners of the lines involved.

“More than 50% of calls to emergency centers are malicious. For this reason, from the MTC we urge citizens to use emergency centers responsibly because freeing a line can save a life. In addition, we ask that parents actively supervise their minor children, who may be using the telephone inappropriately.”said the head of the MTC, Raúl Pérez Reyes.
