The home of the former Peruvian first lady Nadine Heredia, wife of former president Ollanta Humala, and 25 other properties were searched by the Prosecutor’s Office as part of the investigations into the alleged acts of corruption in the Gasoducto Sur Peruano project, assigned to the Brazilian company Odebrecht.
“Police officers of that country participated in the action, led by the prosecutor Geovanna Mori, of the special team ‘Lava Jato’ that investigates the crime and authorized by Judge Juan Carlos Sánchez Balbuena”, RT Noticias explained.
Prosecutor Geovanna Mori of the Lava Jato team said in statements to the press that they had statements from protected witnesses and collaborators to the case that link Heredia with senior Odebrecht officials.
“Heredia is investigated for the alleged crime of aggravated collusion for allegedly having favored the Brazilian construction company. In July of 2017, she served 9 months in prison, along with her husband, for money laundering and conspiracy to commit a crime for allegedly allowing Odebrecht to illegally contribute to Humala’s presidential campaigns in 2006 and 2011. She was released on April 2018”, the aforementioned website wrote.
