It's The Truth
Interpol agents detained one of the members of the IMF-WB new mission to Argentina, Jorge Baca Campodonico, on Thursday, a few meters from the Sheraton Hotel of Buenos Aires. The former Peruvian Minister of Economy currently serves in the International Monetary Fund and is accused of links to the former chief of the Peruvian intelligence services, Vladimiro Montesinos.
Montesinos was the main collaborator of the Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori (1990 - 2000) and is now under arrest in Lima for criminal actions against the public administration. Montesinos has also been prosecuted on connections with narcotraffic, corruption and political assassinations.
