Peruvian prosecutors said they have evidence to convict ex-president Ollanta Humala of money laundering, accusing him of taking illicit funds from Venezuela and Brazilian construction companies, the attorney general’s office said Friday.

Humala has repeatedly denied wrongdoing and has said he will cooperate fully with prosecutors.
