On Sunday, when the alleged acts of corruption in the Moquegua regional government were publicly known, this fact became competence of the third office of the supraprovincial anti-corruption prosecutors, which at that time the prosecutor was attending Antonio Arevalo and that’s why he starts the proceedings, ”explained Tello Rosales.

He stressed that “to avoid any suspicion and that it can be said that they are leaving the investigation to a deputy prosecutor, without doubting the professional competence of the prosecutor Arévalo, we have asked Dr. Chirre to join immediately and he has accepted it, they were already working together, they are the same team. “
Omar Tello explained that The competence of the prosecutors to investigate a criminal act is determined in the laws and procedures of the Public Ministry. In principle, it is the prosecutor on duty for a common crime. Then, there is competition for specialized prosecutors, such as drug trafficking, money laundering, corruption, organized crime, human trafficking, family matters, among others.
In some cases, due to their complexity and characteristics, the nation’s prosecutor’s office has established more specialized competencies, such as those of the Special Team “Lava Jato” for all acts of corruption that compromise Brazilian construction companies, or the Special Team “White Collars of the Port”.

That is why, Tello says, immediately that a media outlet reported that the former CEO of the Peruvian construction company Obrainsa, Elard Tejeda Mosco had declared, in an effective collaboration procedure, that it made an alleged payment for the award of the Lomas de Ilo irrigation project, which has nothing to do with the actions of the Brazilian construction companies, they assumed competition.
Anti-corruption prosecutors at the national level are investigating and have sentences against regional governors for acts of corruption in the exercise of their functions. The regional governors of Cajamarca, Gregorio Santos, and of Ancash, César Álvarez It has sentences obtained by supraprovincial anti-corruption prosecutors.
The investigation of the current government by the “Richard Swing” case, the contracts of the Miriam Morales family, the purchases of rapid tests They are in charge of prosecutors specialized in corruption cases, in the first major investigation of government officials still in office.
The regional governor of San Martin, César Villanueva, has an investigation in the Special Team “Lava Jato” because an illegal payment is attributed to him to award a work to Odebrecht, which is the responsibility of said group of prosecutors.
Omar Tello also clarified that the Prosecutor Germán Juárez Atoche of the “Lava Jato” Special Team will continue with the declaration of the effective collaborator 10-2018. “Effective collaboration is a special procedure that will continue in the Special Team in the” Lava Jato “case, but since they are events other than those they are investigating, they have to coordinate and deliver that information to the competent prosecutor in the case,” he explained.

He indicated that this type of coordination is very frequent. “It is very common that in an effective collaboration case, the aspiring collaborator provides information on other cases, sometimes in other distant places, then The prosecutor must forward this information to the prosecutor who has jurisdiction and coordinates to corroborate the facts”, He indicated.
He noted that the declaration of an aspiring effective collaborator does not give competence to a prosecutor, since his area of work is previously defined to investigate certain facts, not people. “The jurisdiction of the prosecution is defined by the facts, not by the characteristics of a certain public official, nor by what an effective collaborator says”, He concluded.
Elmer Chirre is the only prosecutor in Peru and in all of Latin America who discovered an act of corruption of the construction company Odebrecht through his own investigations: payments to the regional governor of Áncash, forcing the Brazilian construction company to acknowledge these facts, not included in the agreement with the Special Team “Lava Jato”.
Further, has obtained the first sentence for a case linked to Odebrecht, the eight years in prison imposed on regional governor César Álvarez and officials from the regional government of Áncash for the construction of a highway. In parallel, it has signed and obtained two sentences of effective collaboration against executives of the Brazilian construction company and the payment of a civil compensation of 65 million soles, which has already been paid in full.
