For the 20th of this month, the hearing to formulate charges for the alleged crime of money laundering was set against Ricardo R., the former vice president’s uncle, Jorge G., in the corruption case of Odebrecht.
The diligence was convened for November 27 against Ricardo R., Tomislav Topic and his son Jean, owners of Telconet, but was suspended.
Today it is reactivated but only for the uncle of the former vice-president, to whom Topic father would have paid him $ 5.7 million for contacting him with Chinese investors and Odebrecht.
Aníbal Quinde, lawyer of Ricardo R., assures that there is no illegality in the efforts made by his client. (I)
