A Peruvian judge ordered opposition leader Keiko Fujimori to return to prison for a further 15 months‘ pre-trial detention Tuesday as part of an investigation into Latin America’s sprawling Odebrecht corruption scandal.
Während in Peru die Tochter des ehemaligen Präsidenten Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000), Keiko, vor Gericht gegen die drohende Untersuchungshaft kämpft, sieht ihr inhaftierter Vater einer erneuten Anklage entgegen.
Ms Fujimori, the daughter of former President Alberto Fujimori, is in jail awaiting trial for allegedly accepting illegal funds from Odebrecht.
The president also argued that Congress’s appointment of a new judge to the constitutional court would interfere with his efforts to stamp out corruption. Among other things, the court is soon due to decide whether to free Keiko Fujimori from pre-trial detention.
