The Judicial Branch of Peru appointed Judge Víctor Zúñiga as the new person in charge of the case that investigates the alleged crime of money laundering by Keiko Fujimori, leader of the Fuerza Popular party.
“Judge Víctor Raúl Zúñiga Urday was appointed by the Court Specialized in Organized Crime and Corruption of Officials as a substitute for Judge Elizabeth Arias, in the case involving Keiko Fujimori and others for money laundering,” the Judicial Branch reported, according to Sputnik News.
Arias was removed from the case for having a friendly relationship with Jaime Yoshiyama’s lawyer, who is also being investigated in this case.
“Yoshiyama is another of those investigated for allegedly having incurred the crime of money laundering after receiving illicit money from the Brazilian construction company Odebrecht to finance Keiko’s campaign for the presidency in 2011”, the aforementioned media said.
