The disgraced tycoon who headed up Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht was freed from prison this week, but the corruption scandal he spawned could be about to claim another top Latin American politician. Sputnik spoke to Benedito Tadeu Cesar, Brazilian political scientist, about the ramifications of the scandal.

Marcelo Odebrecht, former CEO of the giant Brazilian construction firm which bore his name, was released from prison December 19, to begin a term of house arrest at his luxury home in an affluent Sao Paolo neighborhood.

But Peru’s President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski faces being impeached on Thursday, December 21, after the populist party that controls the Peruvian congress, Popular Force, said he was “morally unfit” to govern after links emerged between the 79-year-old former Wall Street banker and Odebrecht.

President Kuczynski is the latest in a string of politicians across Latin America and as far away as Africa who have been embroiled in a graft scandal emanating from the Brazilian construction behemoth.
