Colombia’s Inspector General opened a preliminary investigation into
the possible links between Bogotá mayor Samuel Moreno and suspected
money launderer DMG, local media reported Friday.
The mayor came under scrutiny after weekly Cambio published transcripts of a telephone conversation between DMG executives that spoke of offering logistical support to the current mayor’s election campaign.
Moreno admitted this week that his mother had spoken to DMG director David Murcia, but denies knowing about any financial or logistical support he would have received from the money launderer.
Inspector General Alejandro Ordoñez will begin investigating reports that the mayor himself also had met with Murcia on several occasions.
