The Peruvian presenter was prosecuted with charges of tax crime for more than $600,000, allegedly having sold a property that was previously seized by the Tax Administration Service (SAT).
If Bozzo was found guilty, she could have received up to nine years in prison for committing a crime called "unfaithful depositary."
Gracias @CiroGomezL gran periodista,como dije confío en las autoridades y el procurador fiscal,tengo las pruebas que jamas vendí una casa embargada ni fui notificada como depositaria es más la ofrecí en 2017 el SAT la rechazó,la verdad siempre sale a la luz https://t.co/c7SM42Pqdq

“I did not address the issue and that became a big problem. There is talk that I sold a foreclosed house... that is the heart of the matter, but what you have to pay is paid. I want to reach an agreement and it's over," Bozzo said live while emphasizing that she did not sell a foreclosed home.
About her escape, or "unexpected disappearance" from Mexico, Bozzo mentioned it as a by-product of her own depression.
“I have to transmit strength to my people. I knew that jail was a guaranteed death sentence. If I were young I would not have fled. I want to live,” she explained in her first statements to the press.
