“By one vote the habeas corpus presented by the former president Ollanta Humala and his wife Nadine Heredia would be defined in the Constitutional Court (TC). The magistrates would not have reached a consensus and, on the contrary, the discrepancies would have deepened.”, explained today La República.
The magistrates also would have discussed the possibility of ruling on the legality of illicit contributions in a political campaign, which in Peru is not regulated.
The project of the president of the TC and rapporteur in this case, Ernesto Blume, is maintained in favor of the release of the former presidential couple, but with another project that is pronounced to maintain the preventive prison.
The magistrates Ernesto Blume Fortini, Manuel Miranda Canales, Carlos Ramos Nunez, Francisco Sardon de Taboada, Marianella Ledesma Narvaez and Augusto Ferrero Costa will meet again today to define which of the two options becomes a verdict.
It would also have been suggested that the TC pronounces on the legality of irregular contributions to political parties, a topic in the investigation that has not yet been discussed.
