Peru's Kuczynski says he did not work as a consultant for Odebrecht

LIMA, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said on Wednesday claims he had worked as a consultant for Brazilian construction company Odebrecht SA, which has admitted to paying millions of dollars of bribes in the country, were false.

Kuczynski said in a speech broadcast on television that he had never received any campaign donations from Odebrecht. The statements came a day after local newspaper El Comercio reported that the scandal-plagued company hired Kuczynski as a consultant a decade ago.
