The Prosecutor General introduced 109 pieces of evidence in the third
week of the trial against David Murica. The former director of
collapsed pyramid scheme DMG is on trial for illicit enrichment and money laundering.
The last piece of evidence introduced is a series of telephone conversations between DMG’s legal adviser Margarita Pabon and other employees. The phone calls were intercepted by the police.
In the conversations Pabon expresses concern about turning over financial records to Colombia’s financial watchdog Superintendencia de Sociedades “because we don’t have them”.
Meetings between Murica and other employees about DMG’s double book keeping are also mentioned.
The conversations also allude to the creation of businesses as part of the DMG group and the closure and liquidation of others being investigated by authorities.
Gladis Amorocho Chacon, a witness from Superintendencia de Sociedades, gave evidence that there were irregularities in DMG’s book keeping and that the systems where information was processed had been tampered with.
She said that DMG’s financial success was incompatible with its social objective and that the organization had expenses and created receipts in the name of other businesses.
