Peru Will Send Documentation On Alan García To Uruguay


The president of Uruguay, Tabaré Vázquez, spoke by telephone with his Peruvian counterpart, Martín Vizcarra, about the request for diplomatic asylum made to Uruguay by former Peruvian President Alan García.

Both Presidents discussed over the phone the asylum request made during the weekend by former Peruvian President Alan García.

“In that conversation, it was agreed that the Government of Peru will send information as soon as possible, and once it is received, the government of Uruguay will decide on the request,” a statement published by the Uruguayan government reads, according to El Universal.

The procedure on this case will be in charge of both chancelleries, said the statement.

The Uruguayan Foreign Ministry confirmed on Sunday afternoon in a statement that García, 69, who allegedly suffered political persecution in his country, submitted a request for diplomatic asylum at the Uruguayan Embassy in Peru.

Vizcarra promised to send the documents required by Uruguay so that they can take “the best decision” regarding the request of the Peruvian ex-president.

“The Peruvian Prosecutor’s Office claims that the former president received $100,000 US dollars of Odebrecht’s dirty money.

The asylum request changed the way García faced corruption allegations linked to Odebrecht, the aforementioned website said.
