Peru’s former President Alejandro Toledo today affirmed that the Ecoteva case on his mother in-law real estate transactions has been subjected to political manipulation.

Statements were made when he left the First Supraprovincial Prosecutor's Office against Money Laundering, where he spoke about his alleged involvement in the case.

Toledo claimed to be respectful of institutions, but assured he cannot hide his suspicion because “the issue is being managed politically at the gates to the 2016 election commission.” 

He also affirmed he has always cooperated with the Prosecutor’s Office every time he was asked to do so, and expressed concern for the little progress in the process. 

His defense team, he added, has already delivered the documents to the Swiss Justice; however, the Prosecutor’s Office has not paid for the cost of translation.

Among the topics Toledo Manrique responded was the purchase of a house in Punta Sal beach and how he was able to finance his home mortgage in the Lima district of La Molina.
