Peru's President Summons Brazil Ambassador After Carwash Report

Peru’s President Ollanta Humala held talks with the Brazilian ambassador to his country after media linked the head of state to a Brazilian company that is under investigation in a sweeping corruption probe known as Carwash.

Humala summoned Ambassador Marcos Raposo Lopes to the government palace in Lima Monday night to request information on the reports and deny wrongdoing, the president’s office said in an e-mailed statement Tuesday. Brazil’s Foreign Affairs Ministry press office had no immediate comment when asked about the meeting.
