Peru: Businessman's statements reveal modus operandi of alleged criminal organization

10:50 | Lima, Nov. 19.

Peruvian Lava Jato Case Special Prosecution Group Coordinator Rafael Vela has deemed as interesting and productive the statements made by Credicorp's Chairman of the Board Dionisio Romero Paoletti, who admitted he had contributed US$3.65 million in cash to Keiko Fujimori's 2011 presidential campaign.

"It has been an interesting and productive session for us because it reveals the modus operandi of an alleged criminal organization. This modus operandi handled large and exorbitant sums of money and eluded anti-money laundering prevention systems," Vela told N channel on Monday night.

"It consolidates the research hypothesis that it (Keiko Fujimori’s party in 2011) received money in a hidden and clandestine way," he expressed.

Also, Vela said the Credicorp highest-ranking officer's statement confirmed something which was known: that not the entire Fujimori campaign had been funded by Odebrecht.

The coordinating prosecutor also stressed that the testimony of the businessman confirms Keiko Fujimori had direct contact in the collection of resources within the organization and has always been aware of the money received.

In his opinion, Fujimori "is giving up" because she never acknowledged that her campaign had received millions in contributions.
