On the other hand, Punishment ruled the recent statements of the former director of Odebrecht in Peru, Jorge Barata, who ratified the $ 300,000 campaign Pedro Pablo Kuchinsky in 2011.
The former director reminded that the delivery was not made directly with the former president, but with the businessman Suzana de la Pouente.
"We will wait for the official statements he has given," he said.
He stressed that, in his case, the defense of Kuchinsky she was not called for any recommendation of the Baratha, "so every statement given will need to be repeated with attending lawyers."
"There is no legal tool that a person declares in an investigation that does not have a defender. It only serves people who are exploring with current defense," he noted.
