Former Odebrecht representative in Peru Jorge Barata on Tuesday confirmed that Odebrecht had made contributions to the APRA
2006 presidential campaign.
Likewise, Barata might have informed the donation —worth US$200,000— was requested by APRA member Luis Alva Castro.
During the interrogatory, the former Odebrecht representative might have also confirmed that Alva Castro used the alias "Laque," who was given US$60,000.
On the other hand, Box Two documents indicated US$40,000 was delivered to APRA.
Furthermore, he reaffirmed contributions were made to ex-Lima Mayor Susana Villaran
(2011-2014) for her anti-recall campaign and to Lourdes Flores Nano's campaign.
As is known, the Brazilian construction giant admitted to having paid millions in bribes to government officials in Peru, in order to secure public-works contracts.
As a result, Odebrecht
benefited from over US$143 million between 2005 and 2014 in Peru, according to the U.S. Justice Department.
