Two other high-ranking officials were sentenced along with their former boss. This includes Cusco’s former Regional Vice-president and former congressman, Mario Ochoa Vargas, charged with collusion and unlawful association, and condemned to seven years behind bars.

Finally, Cusco’s former Manager for Infrastructure, Guido Gallegos, and businesswoman Katiuska Cárdenas Tresierra, were charged with 5 and 7 years, respectively.
