    On November 25, a preliminary arrest warrant was issued for a period of ten days against Chavez Arevalo after it became known on Monday the 21st that he was going to travel without a return ticket to Bolivia, for which reason Judge Ingrid Estacio Soria issued a dciha court order.

    Chavez Arevalo is implicated in a case that investigates the alleged irregularities in a tender of 74 million dollars (about 65 million euros) awarded to the company Heaven Petroleum Operators (HPO) after meeting its manager, Samir Abudayeh, with the Peruvian president Pedro Castle.
