Peru's embattled President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski told a congressional investigative committee that he used a company in the British Virgin Islands to legally avoid paying U.S. taxes, according to audio heard by Reuters Sunday.Kuczynski made the disclosure during more than seven hours of questioning on Friday as he tried to disentangle himself from a growing corruption scandal less than a week before a new impeachment vote in Congress.A report by Peru's banking superintendent this week found Kuczynski registered the sale of his house in Lima to Dorado for $695,000 in 2006, before the company relocated to Peru under Kuczynski's control nearly a decade later.Congress will vote on whether to force Kuczynski from office on Thursday.If Kuczynski is impeached in a vote on Thursday, Vice President Martin Vizcarra would replace him as president.
