Colombian Man Extradited to Ecuador for Money Laundering

first_img A Colombian man was extradited by his country to Quito, where he will serve a 12-year prison sentence for the crime of money laundering, the Ecuadorean Ministry of Interior announced on July 15. In February 2008, the foreign national identified as 31-year-old Andrés P.C., was sentenced when he was unable to justify the origins of his properties in Ecuador, which were seized by authorities, the institution said in a statement. “These properties were transferred by his father, Hernán P. C., who is currently detained in a U.S. prison for drug trafficking charges. When Andrés P. heard about his father’s arrest, he fled the country,” he added. He was detained in June 2012 in Colombia, where the courts accused him for money laundering and authorized his extradition last February. In August 2006, Ecuador disrupted an organization aimed at money laundering, headed by Hernán P. C. The money came from Panamanian companies, according to the Ministry. After this operation, Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Panama and the United States started legal actions against the organization. By Dialogo July 16, 2013last_img read more

We have to be willing to explore anything and not rule anything out.“We’ve got a little bit of flexibility (at catcher), but if we had a chance to get another guy that could impact the middle of our lineup, whatever position he plays, we’d be foolish not to explore it.”last_img read more
