A delegation from Brazilian corruption-tainted construction firm Odebrecht currently pays a visit to Peru in order to negotiate an agreement with the State Attorney's Office, Senior Prosecutor Rafael Vela said.
"I must inform that, even at this moment, an Odebrecht
delegation has come to sign agreements at a meeting including conversations and negotiations with Attorney Jorge Ramirez," he pointed out.
According to the prosecutor, these negotiations seek a solution to Odebrecht's requirements that complements what Peru justice demands as civil compensation.
"(…) We are jointly working with the State Attorney's Office, and we understand this joint effort will determine the fulfillment of obligations, but also the solution to requirements of an effective patrimonial compensation," he added.
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.
