Peru: Odebrecht Strikes Again as Fujimori Dynasty Teeters on Brink of Collapse

Keiko Fujimori has been charged with accepting $1 million dollars in illegal funding from Odebrecht for her 2011 presidential campaign.

First Peru’s Supreme Court overturned a pardon for former president Alberto Fujimori, which will send him back to jail to complete a 25 year prison sentence for human rights violations. Then, yesterday, Keiko Fujimori was handcuffed and arrested at the prosecutor’s office, on charges that she accepted USD $1 million in illicit funding from Odebrecht for her 2011 presidential campaign.
