Millions from Montesinos’ foreign bank accounts to be sent back to Peru

0

 Peru has announced that over $8 million belonging to Vladimiro Montesinos will be sent back to Peru in December, according to prosecutor Julio Arbizu.

The money, which is currently in two bank accounts in Luxembourg, was claimed by the Peruvian government, through its anti-corruption agency, Peru21 reported.

“Luxembourg authorities,” Arbizu said, “have a great willingness to send the money back, the difficulty lies within internal procedures. Unfortunately, we are talking about a case that has been delayed for many years."

According to Arbizu, Montesinos was illegally paid this money during a deal that saw the Peruvian government buy millions of dollars worth of arms and equipment for the country’s armed forces.

The country’s anti-corruption agency claims Montesinos still has $12 million in Swiss bank accounts, which have yet to be returned to Peru.
