Humala is the first former president to be indicted in relation to the affair, which has embroiled a number of other former heads of state.
Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht has admitted to paying US$29 million dollars in bribes in Peru between 2004 and 2015.
Attorney General Germán Juárez Atoche said Humala and Heredia are accused of “leading a criminal organisation to launder assets.”
The public prosecutor’s office is seeking a 20-year sentence for Humala and 26 for Heredia for “hiding real-estate purchases with Odebrecht money.”
