The Peruvian judiciary has confirmed the twelve-month ban on former former lady Nadine Heredia’s exit as part of an investigation into her for corruption.
In January last year, judge Jorge Chávez issued a precaution against Heredia, against which the defense appealed, despite the fact that the Chamber of Appeal, which specializes in corruption crimes, rejected the appeal.
In addition, the former First Lady may have been subjected to tougher precautions due to Geovana Mori’s request to enter preventive detention and stay there for 36 months. According to the Peruvian press, Mori’s application will be resolved on Thursday.
These lawsuits are part of the investigation into Heredia for the construction of the Andino del Sur gas pipeline, a case involving Brazilian construction company Odebrecht, the protagonist of a regional-scale corruption scandal for paying bribes in exchange for public works.
The prosecution claims that the wife of former President Ollanta Humala, also investigated for corruption, acted as a “de facto” officer to help Odebrecht award this project.
