Last Friday, judge Jorge Chávez Tamariz ordered 36 months of preventive detention for former Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (PPK) for the preparatory investigation that is followed for the crime of alleged money laundering by the Odebrecht Case.
“As resolved by Chávez (…) there are serious indications that the crime was committed and there is danger of fleeing and obstruction of the investigation being carried out by the Public Prosecutor’s Office”, according to El Comercio.
The judge, however, refused to impose preventive detention on former PPK’s secretary Gloria Kisic and her former driver José Luis Bernaola Ñuflo.
The 36-month preventive prison was a measure taken because of the charge Kuczynski is facing on the crime of money laundering through a criminal organization that operated between 2003 to 2015.
PPK allegedly participated in corruption acts between 2001 and 2006 related to the concession of the projects Integration of the South American Regional Infrastructure-IIRSA South (sections 2 and 3) and the Olmos transfer. El Comercio explains that this allegedly happened while he as the minister of Economy during Alejandro Toledo’s government.
