Lawyer Cesar Nakazaki announced he will appeal the preventive detention order issued by the Judicial Branch against his client, ex-President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski
, over alleged asset laundering charges to the detriment of the Peruvian State.
Nakazaki affirmed the appeal will be submitted within the legal deadline of three days.
The order was issued by Jorge Chavez Tamariz, head of the Third Preparatory Investigation Court for Corruption Offenses Committed by Public Officials.
"(...) Appealing the decision and waiting for the Appeals Chamber to rule on this issue is the next step," he commented.
According to the attorney, the Appeals Chamber has 48 hours to reach a decision on the matter.
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.
