FAO Postpones Nadine Heredia’s Accession to Office as Geneva Director

ROME – The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization announced on Monday that the former Peruvian first lady’s accession to office as the Geneva director would be postponed.

The organization said the decision was made considering a Peruvian prosecutor’s current investigation into Nadine Heredia Alarcon over alleged money laundering.

FAO spokesman Enrique Yeves told EFE that Peru had already been informed of the decision.

After the appointment was announced last week, the Peruvian government confirmed that the former first lady was under investigation by the Prosecutor’s Office and thus understood the announcement as interfering with an investigation.

The UN office said it would continue monitoring the situation with the aim of identifying appropriate measures and insisted it had never intended to intervene in political or judicial matters within Peru.

Yeves said Heredia was chosen by an internal panel due to her past experience with the organization, her strategic vision and her communication skills.

The Peruvian government insisted that it was in no way related to her appointment and lamented that the foreign minister was not consulted by FAO.

Heredia is currently under investigation for suspected corruption and money laundering in relation to the financing of her husband former President Ollanta Humala’s election campaign.
