Moroover, “Even if bail is available, Toledo presents a significant flight risk, and no special circumstances justify his release.”
It also indicated that “the case is now in a fundamentally different posture than it was a year and a half ago when Toledo was released from custody. Not only has the court certified Toledo for extradition, and his arguments in defense have been released.” , but the circumstances supporting his release have also changed. Accordingly, Toledo should no longer be released on bail.”
In July 2019, the court ordered Toledo’s detention. He was imprisoned at the Santa Rita Prison and Maguire Correctional Facility during the first months of extradition proceedings, noting that there was a flight risk.
However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he was released under house arrest on March 20, 2020, wearing electronic handcuffs.

According to the Peruvian prosecutor’s office, 75-year-old Toledo may have received up to US$35 million from construction company Odebrecht in exchange for favoring the Brazilian company in its business in Peru when he was still the republic’s president.
