The prosecutor in the case against Yehude Simon Munaro, who served as prime minister from 2008 to 2009, requested three years of pre-trial detention, according to El Comercio.

The prosecution accused Simon of accepting bribes from Odebrecht in exchange for $300,000 in campaign contributions in 2006.

Simon maintains his innocence.

In 2016 a United States Justice Department report found that between 2005 and 2014 US$29 million in bribes were made in Peru resulting in US$143 million in benefits for Odebrecht.
