In 10 days, the brothers Ricardo Alberto and Luis Enrique Martinelli Linares will know the sentence that corresponds to them, after having pleaded guilty to conspiring to launder $28 million in bribes from Odebrecht , using the US financial system.

The US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York has recommended Judge Raymond Dearie to issue a sentence of between 108 months (9 years) to 135 months (11 years and 3 months). The lawyers of the two defendants, on the other hand, have requested the release of their defendants, considering that the 23 months they have been in preventive detention (first in Guatemala and now in Brooklyn) is the sentence that would correspond to them.

The original documents are in English. La Prensa makes available to its readers the translated version into Spanish of the two letters sent by the prosecution to the judge: one corresponds to Ricardo Alberto, 42 years old, and the other to Luis Enrique, 40. The first letter has 17 pages and the second, 19.
