Congresswoman Yeni Vilcatoma de la Cruz (Peru).

Attended the Public Corruption Course in 2014.

Before attending ILEA, she served as Anti-Corruption Prosecutor and identified the existence of a criminal organization created to commit acts of corruption. Later, as Anti-Corruption Attorney, she discovered that the organization had international scope, led by transnational corporations that were funding political campaigns to place leaders of the three levels of Government and to obtain the cost overruns of the largest projects in Peru.

Because of the techniques and strategies provided by ILEA, an investigation was conducted in Peru starting in 2014. On December 21, 2016 Robert L. Capers, United States Attorney's, issued an indictment confirming that the Company Odebrecht developed a structured scheme of bribes with international scope, according to the report made by Marcelo Odebrecht in which he tells that in Peru his company paid 29 million in bribes to get approval of strategical projects that jeopardize several Governments.
