The Judiciary sentenced the current Deputy Minister of Transportation, Luis César Rivera Pérez, for the crime of incompatible negotiation when he worked as central manager of Airports of the Peruvian Corporation of Airports and Commercial Aviation (Corpac).

According to the ruling of the First Permanent Unipersonal Criminal Court of the Superior Court of Justice of Callao, the official was interested in contracting the security services of two companies for the Juan Velazco Astete airport< /b> and the Acopia Grande radar station in Cusco, when he held that position.

The former general manager of Corpac, Dhenis Gamth Cabrera Garrido, also received the same sentence; the administrator of the Cusco airport, Carlos Enrique Huaroto Gerónimo; the head of the airport administration team, Jorge Antonio Herrera Alcocer; and the airport security manager, José Antonio Custodio Cáceres Montanchez.

For their part, the general manager of the company World Security and Services S.A.C., Emilo Huamán Pérez, and the legal representative of Walkers Protection S.A.C., Henrry Smith Achaca Vergaray, were sentenced as accomplices.

In addition, at the request of the Prosecutor's Office, the judge ordered in advance of the ruling: the solidarity payment of S/1,255,420 as civil damages in favor of the State, the cancellation of a 180-day fine (equivalent to S/2,052,000 each) and the disqualification from holding public office for a period of six years.

According to the ruling, Cabrera Garrido and today's deputy minister authorized the contracting of the two companies for an amount of S/1,761,878 thousand and divided the service orders for amounts less than 3 tax units (UIT), renewed every two days between March 2013 and January 2014.

To do this, they omitted the process of exoneration for the cause of imminent shortage, in order to illegally benefit said companies.

Furthermore, Huaroto Gerónimo, Herrera Alcocer and Cáceres Montanchez, in their capacity as officers of the Cusco airport, requested the hiring of the security service through service orders and allowed it to continue without observing or denouncing the fact, thus which violated their functions.

It should be noted that, by order of the Judiciary, the execution of the sentence has been suspended until the appeal is resolved in second instance and under the condition of payment of a surety d and S/30 thousand each.
