SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL – Officials from Brazilian conglomerate Odebrecht have signed a preliminary agreement with Peru’s prosecutors’ office to return more than US$8.9 million from illicit gains to the Latin American country.
Peru is one of the several countries where Odebrecht has admitted that officials were bribed so that the company obtained lucrative contracts.
“In the case of Peru, we are making a preliminary agreement to expedite the obtaining of information, but the Peruvian prosecutor will continue to advance investigations with Switzerland, Brazil and other countries involved,” said a press statement . . .
