Interior Minister Diego Fuentes arrived in Lima on December 27 to coordinate with Peruvian authorities the expulsion of two Ecuadorian citizens required for the alleged crime of money laundering, according to press reports. “The Superintendency of Migrations of Peru has issued a notice ordering the immediate expulsion,” Fuentes told to the N TV Channel.
The citizens, a father and his son (whose last name is Pareja), are required by the Ecuadorian Prosecutor’s Office for alleged money laundering. The court detected financial transactions for more than $ 53 million between accounts linked to both people, said Minister Fuentes.
“These people must be surrendered to the Ecuadorian Government because they are fugitives from the Ecuadorian justice. Arrest warrants, an international order of the Interpol were issued against them,” he added. Fuentes stated he spoke with his Peruvian counterpart Carlos Basombrío and the Peruvian immigration authorities and confirmed that the two Ecuadorians would be expelled in the next few hours.
According to the press, Carlos Pareja Cordero arrived in Lima one day before Christmas accompanied by his son Carlos Pareja. Both entered irregularly to Peru because their passport did not record their departure from Ecuador.
