“Peru’s prosecutor overseeing the Odebrecht corruption case, Jorge Ramírez, set the cost of reparations to be demanded from the Brazilian construction company at over 3.468 billion soles (around 1.1 billion U.S. dollars).”, according to Xinhua News, referring to Odebrecht.
This amount comes from three projects that involved Odebrecht corruption, such as the South Peruvian Pipeline, the Southern Interoceanic highway, and the Chacas highway.
They “are the value of the total public damages caused by Odebrecht’s bribery”, said Ramírez, according to Xinhua.
The Brazilian firm initially offered 66 million dollars in civil reparations, but for the prosecutor, it’ not enough and “we are waiting for Odebrecht to change their attitude”, he said in an interview on Sunday during the “Cuarto Poder” TV program.
The Brazilian company’s Ex-President, Marcelo Odebrecht, also confessed recently that the firm contributed to the political campaigns for Alan García and Keiko Fujimori. “I’m certain that we supported everyone. Toledo, Alan García, Humala, Keiko”, he said to La República.
