Colombian football club ‘Independiente Santa Fe’ is being accused of
money laundering. Prosecutor General, Mario Iguaran, opened an
investigation against the football club after discovering
inconsistencies in its administration, El Espectador reported Monday.
Among others, the Prosecution investigates criminal records of 44 partners of the club and financial transactions of the vice president of Santa Fe, Hugo Prieto, with an alleged cocaine exporter.
Armando Farfán, president of Santa Fe, denied any link of the team managers or partners with individuals ‘non sancta’.
On the contrary, Farfán told CM& Noticias that he purged the list of partners in March, after finding that several of them had legal problems.
