LIMA, Feb 17 (Reuters) - Peru's Congress passed a constitutional complaint against former President Pedro Castillo, who was ousted in December, for alleged crimes of corruption in his administration Friday.

The complaint allows Attorney General Patricia Benavides to now formally accuse Castillo, who is in detention after his ouster caused by his attempt to illegally dissolve Congress, of the crimes before Peru's judiciary.
