Yenifer Paredes is being investigated for the alleged crimes of money laundering and criminal organization./
Judge Johnny Gómez will read this Friday from 6 p.m. its resolution to the request made by the prosecution for 36 months of preventive detention for Yenifer Paredes, sister-in-law of the president Pedro Castillo, and for José Nenil Medina, mayor of the Chotano district of Anguía, in Cajamarca.
The Special Team against Corruption in the Prosecutor's Office considers both as members of an alleged criminal network in the Housing sector, which would have Castillo as its head.
The architect affirmed that the current head of the MTC gave her commissions “that did not seem correct to me.” She added that she asked him to favor a construction company that contributed to President Castillo's campaign.
Paredes is credited with the role of 'lobbyist', supposedly in charge of searching for and attracting mayors to offer speedy financing of works in their localities, under the condition that the files and the execution be entrusted to front companies. Meanwhile, Medina is designated as 'operator'.
In the hearings in which the prosecution supported its request, it was argued that there is abundant evidence linked to the alleged commission of the crimes of criminal organization, collusion and money laundering, in addition to the risk that Paredes and Medina will escape or hinder the investigations. Therefore, he considers that preventive detention is necessary so that this does not happen.
The lawyers of both investigated deny the accusations and request that the tax request be rejected.
Paredes and Medina, who have been detained since August 10 and 9, respectively, are expected to be transferred to court to hear the magistrate's decision.
