The investigation carried out by the Prosecutor’s Office into the operations of the South American International Bank (Sai Bank) in Ecuador reveals new facts.
Among the clients of this bank, investigated for alleged illegal withholding of money, there are two intermediaries of Odebrecht, who received money from the construction company to pay bribes to officials. The Prosecutor’s Office has information on four Sai Bank accounts.
One in Ecuador, one in the USA, the third in Venezuela and another in the Netherlands. In Ecuador, the financial institution received USD 153.7 million from 2012 to 2017, through a Banco Capital account.
