Pachakutik Assembly member filed a complaint to the Comptroller, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the legal secretariat of the Presidency and the U.S. Embassy on May 8. Jimenez requests an investigation into each company related to a large financial transaction and alleged damages to the Ecuadorian State from the Tauros Company and the businesses of Vidal Enrique Cadena Marin and his family.
There are around 300 wire transfers of $ 1.2 and $ 1.7 million per month, between the oil intermediary Tauros (USA) and the company Naparina Corp., and from this goes to Breiton Capital & Shipping INC, Denarii Systems, Pegasus Investment, Gabriela Cadena LLC, companies located in Ecuador, the United States and Panama, which are part of the documentation that supports the new complaint of Clever Jimenez.
These companies would be related to the alleged intermediation carried out by Taurus Petroleum oil, which according to Jimenez would harm the state with $ 3 per barrel when reselling the oil that Petroecuador gives to Petrochina. Tauros is a company that works as a trader (intermediary) with Petrochina, with which the Ecuadorian government maintains financial agreements and oil sales.
For his part, Jimenez, who was sentenced to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay a compensation to the Ecuadorian president Rafael Correa, who accused him of libel, assures that the trial against him is a retaliation for the complaints he made on alleged corruption cases, among those is the alleged damage to Ecuador for selling oil to China with some advantages.
