The Third Preparatory Investigation Court, led by Judge Jorge Chavez Tamariz, ordered a 36-month preventive detention against ex-President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski over alleged asset laundering charges, within the framework of the Odebrecht corruption case.
At court, Perez informed the medical certificate submitted by the Legal Medical Institute (IML) indicated the former Head of State's health "is clinically unstable" and that he has uncontrolled high blood pressure.
However, the prosecutor pointed out, this condition "does not mean a serious illness or a permanent physical incapacity" that could prevent the justice from complying with the petition.
Kuczynski did not attend the hearing as he is currently hospitalized at a Lima-based clinic.
Furthermore, in 2007, the Westfield Capital company —founded by Kuczynski— allegedly received money transfers from South IIRSA —Stretches 2 and 3— and Trasvase Olmos.
This new motion was intended to oust Kuczynski for alleged links with Odebrecht.
