On July 1, Quispe joined the former president in an investigation of money laundering between 2015 and 2016, in the presidential campaign of the Peruanos por el Kambio party.

According to the investigations, Kuczynski led a criminal team to raise funds in the campaign, receiving at least $ 100,000 from Empresa Construcción y Administración SA that were not registered by the party or by the National Office of Electoral Processes (ONPE).



“A whole modus operandi has been structured to avoid identifying the money, the true contributors and receiving cash,” prosecutor Puma Quispe told local media.

As indicated by the magistrate, there were false contributors as well as organizations of different types of activities, of which there are no details.

The case was formalized this year, but in 2018 other charges were included such as the crimes of procedural fraud and false declaration in administrative proceedings against those responsible. According to Peruvian media, there are several names involved in the criminal process, especially the party in question.
