Jaime Yoshiyama allegedly delivered $800,000 US dollars to his nephew Jorge Yoshiyama Sasaki to launder as contributions to Keiko Fujimori’s presidential campaign in 2016.
This information was obtained in a confession to the prosecutor José Domingo Pérez, according to La República.
“Jorge Yoshiyama reported that his uncle Jaime Yoshiyama – then secretary general and campaign manager of Keiko Fujimori – summoned him to his home on Las Moreras street, in La Molina, to expressly ask him to get people willing to deposit false donations to the Fuerza 2011 bank account”, the aforementioned media explained.
With this purpose, Jorge Yoshiyama recruited two business friends, Giancarlo Bertini Vivanco and Erick Matto Monge, who in turn got family and friends to give their names and surnames to deposit money to the campaign of Keiko Fujimori.
However, in order to comply with the request of his uncle, Jorge Yoshiyama also placed other entrepreneurs in their professional and personal environment to do the same operation of money laundering. In this group of businessmen is now Fujimorist congressman Miguel Castro Grández.
