Neoliberal leader Fujimori declares receiving illicit funds

Lima, Jul 8 (Prensa Latina) Peruvian Prosecutor Jose Perez requested a 20 years and 10 months sentence for neoliberal leader Keiko Fujimori, and he declared on Monday that she knew about the illicit funds for her electoral campaigns, the charge for which she is being tried.

The prosecutor made the statement on the brink of a new hearing in the trial, which started last week, against Fujimori, her US former husband, Mark Vito, and 46 other defendants and dozens of witnesses for the prosecution, among them former ministers and members of the political and personal entourage of the leader.

In statements to the press, Perez cited the case of the financial group headed by Banco de Credito, which made the contributions in cash, against the legislation which compels it to make the transfers of important amounts through banking operations.

The accuser also pointed out that “the financial entities do not sponsor political parties; this is prohibited by law.

If they had believed that this was not criminal,” the aforementioned bank complied with banking its contribution.

The cash contribution was confessed by banker Dionisio Romero Paoletti and the accuser, given the possibility that he may refuse to testify, so that he will present the transcript of his declarations to the Public Prosecutor’s Office so he will not be able to retract what he said, since he is only a witness.

The prosecution claims that Fujimori received more than 18 million dollars and not all of it went to the electoral campaigns, which she denies.

The daughter of former President Alberto Fujimori declared herself a victim of Perez and affirmed that he is acting against her for political interests.
