Are Lobbyists a part of the Peruvian political system?

Postby ironchefchris » Wed Apr 29, 2015 8:03 pm

Came across an article dripping with irony and it has me wondering if Lima is as filled with corrupt former politicians/current lobbyists as Washington D.C..

Hi Chris,

Short answer is "yes", but it seems nobody knows exactly how many, since there is no penalty for not registering in the registry as the law requires. http://gestion.pe/politica/cuantos-lobb ... ru-2105595

Cheers..

Hire many lawyers here in Peru and they pay somebody and your problem is solved. It is called Corruption. Not unique to Peru and very much alive in the US.

You beat me to it.
We also have the same problem in the UK, but just aren't as open about it. We'd rather think it doesn't happen in our back yard.
