The Foreign Ministry reported on a statement made public on Sunday that García requested asylum “in accordance with the provisions of the Convention on Diplomatic Asylum of 1954, of which Peru and Uruguay are parties”.
In response, the Uruguayan government said they would evaluate the requested asylum, informed Telesur.
Alan García is being investigated under the criminal acts of “money laundering” and “aggravated collusion” for having allegedly committed “illicit acts of conciliation” in the tender for the line 1 of the Lima Metro in favor of the Brazilian construction company Odebrecht, during his last presidential term (2006-2011).
