MADRID, September 4 (EUROPE PRESS) –
Marcelo Odebrecht, the former director of Brazilian construction company Odebrecht, will be questioned this Monday as a witness in a lawsuit against former Peruvian President Ollanta Humala on charges of money laundering.
However, it could be limited and even overturned as Brazilian judge José Antonio Diaz Toffoli invalidated evidence obtained from the “Drousys” and “My Web Day B” systems, which the company used to hide its illegal payments, for violating the “supply chain” published by the Peruvian radio station RPP.
For her part, the judge and president of the trial court, Nike Koranado, decided that the validity of these tests would be reviewed at the same meeting.
Former President Humala is accused of money laundering and a criminal organization that held him in custody from June 2017 to April 2018. His wife, Nadine Heredia, and several representatives of the Peruvian Nationalist Party also appear in the case.
According to the indictment, OAS and Odebrecht (the latter featured in numerous corruption cases across the continent) illegally funded Humala’s 2011 campaign, which granted him access to the Pizarro House after Keiko Fujimori was beaten; while in 2006 it would have received funding from the late former Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.
