REVEALING THE NETWORKS BEHIND CORRUPTION AND MONEY LAUNDERING SCHEMES – AN ANALYSIS OF THE TOLEDO-ODEBRECHT CASE

The Basel Institute on Governance has published a Working Paper based on an empirical investigation of corruption and illicit exchange related to the so-called “Lava Jato” or “Odebrecht” scandal.  It focuses on former Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo and his laundering of bribes obtained from the construction giant Odebrecht.  The case is said to serve as an indicative example for many similar cases in Latin America and beyond.  It also aims to further illuminate the nexus between corruption and money laundering and the role of hidden and offshore financial infrastructures in facilitating the illicit schemes
