Looks like Brazil opened Pandora’s box when they arrested Odebrecht CEO, and now Peru backs up the anti corruption trend, who else will follow?

“Peruvian prosecutors plan to visit Brazil this month to gather evidence of bribery on a transcontinental highway project. Peru’s attorney general said in an interview, adding to regional fallout from the biggest corruption scandal in Brazil’s history.

The mission laid out by Peruvian Attorney General Pablo Sanchez is the most public sign yet of international cooperation on a case that has jailed heads of major Brazilian engineering groups as police comb bank records for evidence of a cartel.

Regional interest in the probe exploded last month, when Brazilian police arrested the CEO of Odebrecht SA (ODBES.UL), Latin America’s biggest construction company. His arrest has put billions of dollars worth of infrastructure projects in the region under fresh scrutiny.”
