PERU LEADER ACCUSED OF TAKING BRIBES THROUGH COMPANY BASED AT SCOTS LAW FIRM

The Herald in Scotland reports on 13th February about Alejandro Toledo, his country’s first indigenous president, denies any wrongdoing, but prosecutors allege he took around $10 million in illicit payments from the Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht in return for lucrative contracts to build a major highway.  Peruvian authorities also say that the former president got nearly $6 million of that money – more than £4 million – through an account in the name of a Scottish limited partnership or SLP registered at the Glasgow addresses of blue chip law firm Burness, which later merged with another firm to create Burness Paull.
