Chilean businessman Gerardo Sepulveda, ex-partner of president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (PPK), at the Westfield Capital and First Capital companies, acknowledged to the Peruvian Prosecutor’s Office that his companies did business with Odebrecht, although he denied that the president intervened in them, said DW.
The news website informed that several Peruvian media leaked the content of the statements that the businessman made recently to the prosecutors at the headquarters of the Public Ministry of Chile, in Santiago.
Sepúlveda confirmed that his company consulted with Odebrecht during the indicated period and received a payment, of which PPK never benefited. He assured that the current president of Peru “neither interfered, nor benefited, nor affected the consultancies provided and investments”.
On December 21 Kuczynski faced a request to leave office, presented by the opposition in Congress after revealing that his company had given consultancies to Odebrecht between 2004 and 2007, a period in which he was Minister of Economy and Prime Minister of the Government of Toledo.
