Peru's Lava Jato Case Special Prosecution Group
on Friday signed the long-awaited collaboration agreement with Odebrecht representatives and former employees in Brazil.
Prosecutor Rafael Vela
indicated this has been a successful negotiation and will provide valuable information in the quest to discover the truth.
At a press conference, Vela remarked that no restriction would be placed upon the entire information required by Peruvian justice.
Another key aspect of the negotiation is that Odebrecht will have to pay —this year— all taxes owed so far in order to participate in future public bids.
The collaboration agreement with the Brazilian construction giant was inked at the Peruvian Consulate in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The event also featured Prosecutor Jose Domingo Perez
and representatives of the Lava Jato case's Ad Hoc State Attorney's Office led by Jorge Ramirez.
