The head of the Attorney General’s Office also requested the start of preliminary proceedings against the Fuerza Popular parliamentarian, accused of cutting the salary of trusted workers in his office.
The National Prosecutor’s Office has already opened a preliminary investigation against Cordero Jon Tay for alleged concussion, and against Braden Paredes, a technician in the Archives area, for allegedly being an accomplice to the same crime.

According to the Sunday publication, the parliamentarian requested the money from the worker, justifying that she needed it to finance the campaign of the brothers Keiko and Kenji Fujimori, to pay for medicines for the sentenced former president Alberto Fujimori and to help collaborators he had during his candidacy for Parliament.
At another time, the congresswoman was heard saying: “Let’s go to the ATM then, I don’t know. No, it’s not that you don’t have it, it’s that I need, that’s the issue. The operations do not wait and they are people who have helped me in the campaign, that is, I already stayed. You can’t be tomorrow, tomorrow, that’s not how things are”.

According to what was revealed by Latina’s Sunday newspaper, the intermediary between the former worker and the parliamentarian would be Braden Paredes, a technician in the Archive area, as Cordero Jon Tay mentions in the audio.
“Everyone puts the person who helped them, nobody puts you there for nothing. You are for Branden nothing more and you pay him badly. Still because you behave badly with me and when you behave badly with me it is as if you behave badly with him, because he has a great consideration for me. I am supporting him in his campaign too, ”he declared.
The former worker decided to break his silence, but through retaliation he hid his identity. However, the broadcast audios seriously compromised the Fuerza Popular legislator, who must now face a tax investigation against her.
