In an audio that records a conversation between former presidential secretary Bruno Pacheco and businessman Zamir Villaverde is left over in evidence that both had an interest in the contracts of the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) and the Ministry of Housing, Construction and Sanitation (MVCS).
The recording broadcast by the Willax channel would show that the friends of the head of state —Bruno Pacheco and Zamir Villaverde—were interested in taking over the MTC and the MVCS.
According to the transcript of the audios, Pacheco and Villaverde took advantage of their closeness to the president to, allegedly directing hiring to companies that agreed to pay bribes.
“Bruno, tell me, why don’t you go to a ministry where there is management? For example, Housing or Agriculture”.
Bruno Pacheco replied:
“If you tell me, I’ll go, but they have to tell me what I’m going to win there. Because if I go for the roe…”.
Next, the business operator Zamir Villaverdein the audio recorded by himself, reveals his complicity:
“I believe, According to what I have found out, they want to make the plot and the whole thing. Yes, but in three months it is enough to leave with money”, said Villaverde.
“Listen to me,” he added. I in Transport (Ministry of Transport and Communications, MTC) have everything organized. And if you leave as vice (minister) of Transport?
“Vice? So little?” answered Bruno Pacheco.
former presidential secretary appealed to alleged links with the president to negotiate the takeover of the State, according to your interests.
Villaverde: “But what are you going to negotiate, brother? (…) For me, in Housing, millions are handled. I put together the whole picture for you, I put together everything for you. There you also drive Sedapal. In other words, after Transportation, it is (the Ministry of Housing),” Villaverde told Pacheco.
The truth is that the transcriptions of the broadcast audios confirm that officials of the president castle, such as former Secretary Bruno Pacheco, maintained direct contact with State suppliers, like Zamir Villaverde, but in the shade.
“Oe, you have surprised me with this leg of Juan Silva”, Pacheco is heard saying, to which Villaverde replies: “Juan Silva, but this guy has been caught with… that asshole is not the one who gave him the briefcase of a million dollars or soles, so what an abuse.”
Pacheco: “With the briefcase, but… Pedro knows about a million soles, he plays dumb.”
Villaverde: “He has put everything, but knowing that he was going to go to Transport. There he will negotiate other things.”
Pacheco: “That is a land dealer.”
The recordings confirm that there was an agreement outside the law, which they document that a corruption scheme existed, without a doubt.
Villaverde: “The question is whether Juan Silva will let us work?”
“You have been very clear, each one handles his case,” said Pacheco, and Villaverde replied: “If I talk to Juan Silva and tell him that I have everything articulated, let me do the whole thing.”
To resolve disputes, Villaverde proposed to Pacheco: “The only thing I ask of you is that we fight for the Vice Ministry of Transportation. And everything that I take out, I’m going to give you the list of acquisitions. I’m going to show you and I’m going to give you a number. It’s that simple, nothing more, ”she expressed.
In an attempt to defend himself, the businessman, through his lawyer Julio Rodríguez, has released audios of their conversations with the former Secretary General of the Presidency.
But Villaverde has not provided the authorities with information —audios, videos, etc.— about its role in the contracting of Chinese companies by Provías Descentralizado, an agency of the MTC. But his recorded statements on audio, and which are in the hands of the Public ministryconfirm that during the Castillo government contracts were instrumentalized for the benefit of members of the entourage of the head of state.
“I, right now, in the end, in the cold, I would stay in the General Secretariat (of the Presidency of the Republic). Because you get out of a position and you can’t come back, “said the offender.
The authorities estimate that there is coordination with those investigated. It was time for them to tell the truth.
In progress. According to the Public Ministry, Zamir Villaverde would have interfered in the award in favor of Chinese and Peruvian companies
