Panamanian Investigators To Question Murcia in Colombia

Corruption El Siglo - Two Panamanian prosecutors will go to Colombia this week in order to take an official sworn statement from David Murcia Guzmán, who is under arrest in Colombia and being held on charges of money laundering and fraud. Ana Matilde Gomez, the Solicitor General of the Nation, said that due to the investigations being carried out related to the use of monies supposedly donated by David Murcia to political campaigns in Panama, it is necessary to obtain official testimony taken under oath or objective proof that can sustain or prove the accusations made by Murcia in several news publications and broadcasts against two candidates running for election in Panama. According to Gomez, they are trying to establish if Murcia really did give the money to the candidates. (more)

“It is necessary to know the date when he did that, in order to be able to determine if the candidates had knowledge that the money was the produce of possible illicit activities," said Gomez.

THE CARS

After a search conducted in the Chichaco Motorsport, S.A., located in Santa Elena, authorities determined that only one of the three vehicles found in the shop belongs to Murcia, a red Ferrari.

Also simultaneously yesterday authorities moved a Hummer that had been located in the parking lot of the Miramar to the impound lot in Patacón. Initially authorities could not move the vehicle because they did not have the key, so they had one made and then moved the vehicle.

Another report issued by the offices of the Fourteenth Circuit Public Prosecutor establishes that among the properties owned by Murcia in the country are 15 vehicles, a yacht, a motorcycle, and an apartment.

According to a source in the Public Ministry they still can't find three vehicles, although the number of missing of cars is supposedly five.

The First Anti Drug Prosecutor, José Abel Almengor, who is investigating the crimes of money laundering, said in his report a yacht, eight cars, and an apartment, all with a total value of $5.3 million dollars, as well as frozen accounts containing $1.3 million dollars.

Almengor asked for judicial attendance from the United States for the investigation into allegations of money laundering being conducted against Murcia in that country.

Dos fiscales panameños viajan al vecino país

Dos fiscales del Ministerio Público viajarán esta semana a Colombia con la finalidad de tratar de tomarle declaración indagatoria a David Murcia Guzmán, detenido en Colombia por lavado y captación masiva de dinero.

La información la dio Ana Matilde Gómez, procuradora General de la Nación, quien resaltó que debido al proceso que se sigue por uso de recursos de David Murcia, en campañas electorales, es necesario obtener un testimonio bajo juramento o las pruebas objetivas que demuestren o sustenten las acusaciones que viene realizando Murcia en varios medios de comunicación contra varios candidatos a elección popular en Panamá.

Según Gómez, con esto lo que se busca es establecer si realmente Murcia entregó dinero a candidatos. “Hay que saber la fecha que lo hizo, para determinar si los candidatos políticos tenían conocimiento que el dinero era producto de posibles actividades ilícitas”, agregó Gómez.

LOS AUTOS

Luego del allanamiento realizado al taller Chichaco Motorsport, S.A., ubicado en Santa Elena, las autoridades determinaron que solo uno de los tres vehículos que encontraron en el lugar pertenece a Murcia. Un Ferrari de color rojo. A la vez ayer se logró mover hacia el corral ubicado en Patacón el Hummer que se encontraba ubicado en el Miramar. Inicialmente, las autoridades no pudieron mover el vehículo, porque no tenían la llave, por lo que tuvieron que mandarla a hacer para luego proceder a la movilización.

Otro informe levantado por la Fiscalía Decimocuarta de Circuito establece que entre las propiedades de Murcia en el país hay 15 vehículos, un yate, una moto y un apartamento.

Según una fuente del Ministerio Público, faltan por encontrar tres vehículos, a pesar de que el número de faltante de autos es de cinco.

El fiscal Primero de Drogas, José Abel Almengor, quien investiga el delito de blanqueo de capital, reportó en su informe un yate, ocho automóviles y un apartamento, todo esto valorado en 5.3 millones de dólares y en dinero de cuentas congeladas por 1.3 millones.

Almengor también solicitó asistencia judicial a Estados Unidos, por el proceso por blanqueo de capitales que se le sigue a Murcia en este país.
