Bloomberg News informed that the court ruled in a 4-3 vote to grant the ex-presidential couple the habeas corpus request. This led to their immediate release.
Former Odebrecht executive in Peru Jorge Barata told the Peruvian prosecution earlier this year that he delivered $3 million US dollars to Ollanta Humala’s 2011 presidential campaign, by order of his then boss, Marcelo Odebrecht, former CEO of Odebrecht.
Nevertheless, Humala has always denied these allegations and says that “he and his wife never posed a flight risk”, as you can read in Bloomberg News.
