DMG director David Murcia Guzmán says that, unless the Government
allows his company to reopen its doors, there will be no money to pay
the people who invested in the suspected pyramid scheme.
One of Murcia’s lawyers, Dagoberto Charry, expressed his client’s thoughts saying that “if the company is operating, there will be enough money for everybody. If not, the money won’t even be enough to pay the providers,” he said.
Murcia also proposed a co-administration, in which the company’s management would be divided between the Colombian government, himself and investors.
Charry stressed that the national authorities have no way to prove that DMG’s capital was earned through illegal activities as drugs trafficking or paramilitarism.
The 28-year-old Murcia was arrested in Panama on November 19th and extradited to Colombia a day later. He has been held by authorities since and is suspected of illegal gaining of resources, money laundering, illicit enrichment and the organization of criminal activities.
