Colombia’s Supreme Court authorized the extradition of former DMG director David Murcia, who is wanted by U.S. Justice on money laundering charges.
Both the Colombian Government and Murcia’s defense want the convicted businessman to stand trial in the U.S.
According to Murcia’s defense attorneys, the disgraced businessman never received a fair trial in Colombia and will have the possibility to clear his name before a U.S. court.
Murcia’s company DMG was shut down by authorities in 2008 and accused of being a ponzi scheme and laundering money for drug lords. Murcia claims his company was legit and he is persecuted to serve the interests of Colombia’s banking elite.
