The return of Nadine
04 December 2016
Following adverse public reaction to her trip to Geneva to take up an appointment with the UN World Food Programme, Nadine Heredia, the former first lady, returned to Lima last week. Her first appointment was to go and see the judge who had previously allowed her to travel on the understanding she would sign in at the Peruvian consulate in Geneva each month and commit herself to responding to any legal questioning under Peruvian law.
Although there are still no formal accusations against her, she is under investigation, and now Congress will debate on whether she should be asked to come to explain her situation before the legislature. Heredia, who is still employed by the UN and has taken a 15 day leave of absence, has explained she has nothing to fear and that she has not been involved in any wrong-doing.
