Supporters rally in Peru after opposition leader detained in money laundering probe

Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of former President Alberto Fujimori and leader of the opposition in Peru, was arrested as part of an investigation into accusations of money laundering linked to her 2011 presidential campaign.Fujimori was detained when she arrived at the state prosecutor’s office to testify in the case, which was brought under Peru’s Organised Crime Law, according to an official document seen by Reuters.The document stated that Fujimori’s 2011 Fuerza party, now called Fuerza Popular (Popular Force), received “illicit contributions through acts of corruption by Brazilian business group Odebrecht.”Building conglomerate Odebrecht has been at the centre of Latin America’s biggest graft scandal since acknowledging in a late 2016 leniency deal that it had bribed officials in a dozen countries, including Peru.
