The theme of his talk will be ‘transparency in business is all our business'. Transparency International is a global civil society organisation which fights against corruption, and it is the first time Ugaz has visitied Papua New Guinea.
A lawyer by training, Ugaz served as ad hoc state attorney of Peru and prosecuted several top-level corruption cases.
Most notably, he was instrumental in the corruption case against former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori and Vladimiro Montesinos, the former head of the country's intelligence services.
During the Fujimori-Montesinos affair (2000-2002), his office opened more than 200 cases against 1500 members of the Fujimori network. Under his mandate, $205 million in assets were frozen abroad and $75 million were recovered.
He was a member of the UN peacekeeping mission and the UN election observers' mission and from 2004 to 2006 served at the World Bank's institutional integrity office.
He has been teaching criminal law at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru since 1986.
Ugaz was elected to the Transparency International board in 2011 and elected chair in 2014.
The breakfast will take place between 7am and 9am and costs K90 for Port Moresby Chamber of Commerce and Industry members and K100 for non-members. Bookings may be made through
