Humala and Heredia are both investigated for the “alleged crime of money laundering, as a result of the contributions that the construction company Odebrecht would have made to its campaign in 2011”, wrote El Comercio.
In addition to the house of Ollanta Humala, four other homes will be searched, informed El Comercio yesterday. Bank accounts will also be seized, as was told by the Public Ministry through its Twitter account.
“Last night [Sunday], in the TV program ‘Cuarto Poder’, the former head of state denied that his campaign in 2011 was financed in part by the Brazilian construction company Odebrecht. Despite this, he indicated that receiving a contribution and not declaring it does not constitute a crime in Peru.”, explained El Comercio.
On that same TV show, he was asked about why he went to Marcelo Odebrecht’s house in Brazil after being elected. He responded that he attended a meeting of entrepreneurs and did not know that this was the headquarters of the former CEO of the construction company.
