The Peruvian First Lady Nadine Heredia will not be investigated for money laundering after judge María Niño Palomino decided it was a done and cleared case, reports El Comercio.

The First Lady was cleared once again for suspicious deposits received between October 20, 2005 and March 5, 2009.

She is therefore not subject to investigations of the money transferred to her mother Antonia Alarcon and her friend Rocio Calderon, after both received transfers of thousands of dollars from the Venezuelan company Kaysamak, linked to Chavez.

Fugitive businessman and once campaign manager for her Nadine’s husband, Martín Belaunde Lossio declared today that if he is to “go to jail for money laundering, Nadine should go to.”

Belaunde Lossio was on the run in Bolivia until recently he was turned over to Peruvian authorities. He is wanted on multiple charges, including money laundering with ties to Nadine Heredia.
