Civil society groups have called for a demonstration to be held in Lima on Thursday, April 25, in support of the prosecution of the Odebrecht corruption scandal. Demonstrators are expected to gather at 17:00 (local time) at the Plaza San Martin. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are expected around the demonstration. Further associated demonstrations are possible in the coming days.
Prosecutors have been investigating allegations that several officials took bribes in the form of campaign donations from Odebrecht in exchange for promises to award lucrative construction projects to the Brazilian company.
Individuals in Peru are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
