So far, Colombia’s Electoral Council has not found any evidence of
any illegal funding of the referendum held in 2008 to demand the
re-election of President Álvaro Uribe.
In an interview with Caracol Radio, magistrate Joaquin José Vives, who is in charge of the referendum investigation, said there has not been any criminal money found, but did say on a number of occasions supporters donated more than the allowed 3.3 million pesos.
Vives Wednesday questioned David Murcia, the director of alleged money launderer DMG. Murcia refused to speak about his alleged support, arguing it would endanger his family.
The Electoral Council did establish that DMG daughter company Transval donated 4.7 million pesos to the referendum, which is more than the allowed amount.
