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

West Brom unwilling to go to tribunal to sign Championship defender – Pulis

first_imgWest Brom will abandon their attempts to sign Charlie Taylor if they fail to reach a deal with Leeds, according to Tony Pulis.The Baggies boss does not want to take the risk of going to a tribunal for the 23-year-old left-back, who is out of contract at Elland Road this summer.Taylor can move on a free transfer but, because he is under the age of 24, any club who signs him will have to pay Leeds a compensation fee related to his development. Taylor has been with Leeds since the age of nine.West Brom want to negotiate a fee with Leeds to avoid the possibility of an unexpected bill down the line and it has been reported that they have offered £3.5million for the player.Liverpool were ordered to pay Burnley £6.5million rising to a potential £8million after they took Danny Ings on a free transfer from Burnley in the summer of 2015.Pulis said: “We wanted to find out what the price was to see if we’d be interested. If it’s going to go to tribunal, we don’t know what the price is and I think that takes us out of the game.“You could go to tribunal and they could put an extraordinary amount of money on it and you’re stuck with it. It’s a risk that, at this moment, is not worth taking.” Charlie Taylor: The 23-year-old is out of contract at Leeds 1last_img read more
