10:07 | Lima, Aug. 14.

Wanda del Valle Bermudez Viera —ex-partner of gunned-down criminal Christopher Fuentes Gonzales, also known as "Maldito Cris" (Damned Cris)— was included in the Rewards Program of the Peruvian Ministry of Interior (Mininter).

Since Friday, S/150,000 (US$41,600) is being offered for information leading to her capture.

A member of the criminal organization "El Tren de Aragua" (The Aragua Train), Venezuelan citizen Wanda del Valle is accused of conspiring for the commission of contract killing.

Shortly after the death of her ex-partner "Maldito Cris," she had offered $40,000 to make an attempt on the life of Peruvian National Police (PNP) Criminal Investigation Directorate (Dirincri) Homicide Investigation Division Chief, Colonel Victor Alfredo Revoredo Farfan.

Among the most wanted

After analyzing the case, the Ministry of Interior's Commission for the Evaluation of Rewards against Criminality determined that the investigated person must be included on the Rewards Program's "Most Wanted List."

Within this framework, S/150,000 (US$41,600) is offered in exchange for information that leads to her location and capture.

Inside "El Tren de Aragua," Del Valle allegedly performs the illegal task of collecting money from various illicit acts, such as racketing, extortion, and blackmail demands.

According to the investigations, Wanda del Valle would have contacted different criminals to offer them, via social media, the promise to pay large sums of money in exchange for murdering the Peruvian National Police officer.

Thus, the Judiciary has ordered the location and capture of the aforementioned criminal of Venezuelan origin, for conspiracy and offering money for the crime of contract killing to the detriment of Revoredo Farfan.

The First Criminal Chamber of Permanent Appeals of San Juan de Lurigancho district, in Lima, on Friday ordered the preliminary detention of the suspect, for seven days, and that Interpol be notified to issue the corresponding red alert.
