OFFICERS of the National Police, in collaboration with INTERPOL and the Peruvian embassy in Spain, have recovered 28 original manuscripts from the time of the Viceroyalty of Peru of dating from the 16th, 18th and 19th centuries which mainly concern the sale of slaves.

These documents were being offered online in an auction and thanks to the information received from Interpol in Lima, Peru, officers were able to stop their sale after pointing out to the seller in the town of Badajoz that it was not permitted to sell them.

They have now been returned to Peru as they are considered part of that country’s national heritage.
