Peru: Prosecutor demands 20 years and 6 months in prison against ex-President Toledo

10:18 | Lima, Aug. 12.

Peruvian Lava Jato Case Special Prosecution Group member Jose Domingo Perez filed an accusation against former President of Peru Alejandro Toledo (2001-2006) as part of the investigation into the Odebrecht case.

The prosecutor demands 20 years and 6 months in prison for the crimes of collusion and money laundering for allegedly having received money in graft from the Brazilian construction company in order to be awarded the South Interoceanic Highway.

An accusation was also made against Avraham Dan On, Sergio Bravo Orellana, Alberto Pasco-Font Quevedo, Jose Graña Miro Quesada, Fernando Camet Piccone, Jose Castillo Dibos, Hernando Graña Acuña and Gonzalo Ferraro Rey.

The Prosecutor's Office demanded 20 years and 6 months in prison against Jose Graña for the crimes of collusion and money laundering, as well as 11 years and 6 months for Hernando Graña for the crime of money laundering.

In the case of Toledo's ex-presidential security team chief Avi Dan On, the Public Ministry has requested 9 years in prison for the crime of collusion.

Last June, Lava Jato Case Special Prosecution Group Coordinator Rafael Vela reported that the Prosecutor's Office investigations had been interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic, but they expected to have the accusation on the South Interoceanic Highway filed before the extradition hearing.
