Today the former presidential candidate, Keiko Fujimori, was arrested as a preventive manner for 10 days as part of an investigation regarding alleged money laundering.
El Clarín detailed that Fujimori remains at the Office of the Prosecutor for the Cócteles case. Other 19 people have been detained as well.
“According to the newspaper La República, Keiko Fujimori went, with her husband Mark Vito, to testify to the Prosecutor’s Office for the Cócteles case, but was arrested. In addition, another 19 people have been arrested”, El Clarín explained.
Prosecutor José Domingo Pérez, in charge of the case, requested the arrest because the daughter of former President Alberto Fujimori had not attended summons from the money laundering prosecutor’s office.
The prosecutor attributes to Keiko Fujimori being the leader of a criminal structure within the political party Fuerza Popular, which receives illicit contributions of corruption and other crimes.
For her part, Keiko Fujimori’s lawyer, Giuliana Loza, called the measure “abusive” and “arbitrary.”
According to Prosecutor Perez, the contributions to the 2011 campaign of Keiko Fujimori had an irregular origin through phantom contributors.
