The Panamanian Attorney’s Office sent Ecuador three volumes and a compact disc with information on the Odebrecht case. Attorney General Carlos Baca received the documents on August 25 and is now part of the file for an alleged illicit association, of which there are 18 defendants.
Since last month, the data are analyzed by an accounting expert. This expert must submit a report until Wednesday, September 27, 2017, investigators said Monday. The expert examines the bank transfers carried out by 11 Panamanian offshore companies, linked to the Ecuadorian defendants and the Brazilian construction company.
The companies are Columbia Management Inc., Southern International Construction Company, Belvedear Worldwide Company, Golden Engineering Services, Emalcorp, Alesbury Investments, Houston Energy Consulting, Popa Worldwide Company, Joubert Corporation, Equitransa SA, and Ferhead Holding Inc. These companies opened accounts in seven Panamanian banks, from where the fines were apparently paid. (I)
