Document suggests Keiko was offered Odebrecht cash

25 June 2017

A document published by IDL Reporteros, a news analysis service linked to the Instuto de Defensa Legal (IDL), seems to confirm the fact that Ollanta Humala was not alone in being offered money to fund his presidential election campaign in 2011. A written document retrieved from Marcelo Odebrecht, the head of the corruption-ridden Brazilian construction firm who is now in jail, suggests that Keiko Fujimori may also have been on his payroll. The initials AG are also mentioned in the document. Last month, IDL published testimony from Brazil that also pointed in this direction, with the then APRA candidate (and now second vice-president of the republic), Mercedes Aráoz, also being funded in this way. A spokesman for Fuerza Popular, responding to the IDL Reporteros report, denied that Keiko Fujimori had received any money from Odebrecht.

    Human rights violations were widespread during the twenty years after the initiation of armed conflict in 1980.
