At least twenty Colombian senators had ties to suspected money
launderer DMG, the attorney of the company’s jailed director David
Murcia said Sunday.
In an interview with Caracol Radio, attorney Gustavo Salazar said he was told so by his client this week during a meeting in Bogotá’s La Picota prison.
According to the lawyer, the senators had their campaigns financed by DMG, had borrowed money of the company of simply invested in the company, that’s suspected of Laundering money for drug lords and left hundreds of thousands of Colombians broke when the government shut it down.
Salazar says that Murcia is willing to appear before Congress to reveal the names of those senators involved, but added that none of the politicians made contact with DMG while it already was officially investigated for money laundering and illicit enrichment through a ponzi scheme.
