Investigations into the Nule Group’s spending revealed that Edmundo del Castillo, the former judicial advisor to ex-President Alvaro Uribe allegedly received payments from the disgraced Colombian construction conglomerate.
The payment in question was paid in cash at “Centro Commercial Andina” in Bogota, according to an official document supplied by the liquidators Pablo Muñoz Gomez and engineers Saul Sotomonte and Ponce de Leon.
The incriminating document surfaced during the ongoing investigation into the Nule Group’s corruption scandal, for which the three directors were formally charged Tuesday by Prosecutor General Viviane Morales.
Seized accounting software has revealed the details of the Nule Group’s spending and expenses, including the 270 bank accounts held by the conglomerate, their assets and properties in Colombia and abroad as well as payments made to public officials.
Investigations also revealed the company allegedly made payments to multiple public servants, or people with a capacity to influence public servants, with checks made out to “couriers, escorts and drivers, who exchanged them for cash and then brought the money to the office which was then passed on to third parties, with the approval of Nule directors.”
