Keiko Fujimori, admitted to a prison in Lima for alleged crimes in the Odebrecht case


LIMA (Sputnik) – Keiko Fujimori, leader of the Peruvian Popular Force party (Fujimorista, right), was admitted to the Women’s Criminal Annex, located in Lima, where he will serve 15 months in custody for alleged crimes in the Odebrecht case, the Andean agency.

“An evaluation of the Classification Board of the National Penitentiary Institute determined that it is the Penal Annex of Women of Chorrillos where Fujimori Higuchi is being held until April 27, 2021,” the media said on its website.

The enclosure, also known as Santa Monica Penal, was the same in which the Fujimorist leader was held preventively from October 2018 to November 2019.

Fujimori was imprisoned for the same cause of alleged crimes with Odebrecht; however, he was released after the Constitutional Court declared a habeas corpus appeal in his favor.
On January 28, the Peruvian justice accepted the request of the Prosecutor to give him preventive detention.
New testimonies of those close to Fujimori would have given rise to the request, getting the investigated to be admitted back to prison.

The Prosecutor’s Office maintains that Keiko would have received illegal contributions from Odebrecht to finance his campaign for the presidency in 2011, as well as the leader of a criminal organization installed within his party and dedicated to the laundering of money coming not only from the Brazilian construction company but from other contributors, including private Peruvian entrepreneurs.

On January 28, Fujimori said he was the victim of a “political persecution” and announced that he will go to governments and international institutions to denounce the alleged injustices committed against him.
