Peru Welcomes Brazilian Cooperation in Corruption Probe

LIMA Ė Peruvian anti-corruption prosecutor Joel Segura praised on Wednesday the willingness of his counterparts in Brazil to investigate whether Brazilian companies paid bribes in Peru to win contracts for work building portions of a pair of transnational interoceanic highways.

Segura told the official Andina news agency that his office has received indications that Brazil intends to cooperate with the probe.

The Peruvian Attorney Generalís office will send prosecutors to Brazil in the coming days to interview witnesses and to pore over documentation gathered by Brazilian investigators.

Documents seized by Brazilís Federal Police in 2009 from executives of the Camargo Correa construction company indicate that more than $6.4 million was paid out in the form of bribes and illegal commissions during the extension of the highways through Peruvian territory.

Camargo Correa was part of the consortium that built the fourth segment of the southern interoceanic highway, along with fellow Brazilian firms Andrade Gutierrez and Queiroz Galvao.

On July 1, the Peruvian Controller-Generalís office sent to the AG office five reports pointed to apparent irregularities in the awarding of contracts for construction and maintenance of the southern and northern interoceanic highways.
