Former Peruvian President Alan Garcia has been buried in Lima after taking his own life on Wednesday as police arrived to arrest him.

He's the latest casualty of the Car Wash corruption case, which has ensnared five former presidents of Peru so far.

On Friday, a court ordered a jail term of up to 36 months for former President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.

Prosecutors suspect that one of his companies received payments from Odebrecht for construction concessions in Peru while he was a government minister.

Al Jazeera's Mariana Sanchez reports from Lima, Peru.
