Colombian President Gustavo’s son and ex-wife are being charged with money laundering.
Even the rebel leader in Colombia is not above the law. His son has been arrested for money laundering. This is something that is not happening in the corrupt US with its corrupt Justice Department.
Merco Press reports:
Colombian President Gustavo Petro’s son and his ex-wife have been indicted for money laundering, the Prosecutor’s Office announced Sunday following the couple’s arrest on Saturday.
“As a person and a father, it hurts me a lot to see so much self-destruction and that one of my children goes to jail; as President of the Republic, I assure the Prosecutor’s Office all the guarantees on my part to proceed according to the law,” President Petro said. “May these events forge his character and may he reflect on his own mistakes,” he added on social networks.
Nicolás Petro Burgos and Daysuris Vásquez were indicted by a Bogota court Sunday after a judge found that their detention at their Barranquilla residence had been performed in accordance with the law. They were eventually flown to the South American country’s capital for further legal proceedings.
The magistrate also found that the “searches and seizures for the purpose of confiscation of elements that would be useful for the investigation and that acquire the quality of probative material or physical evidence,” were done in a legal manner, the Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement. In a hearing that lasted for eight hours, the 74th Municipal Criminal Court reaffirmed that “all constitutional and legal requirements were met.”
The Prosecutor’s Office plans to file charges against Nicolás Petro for money laundering and illicit enrichment, and against Vásquez for money laundering and violation of personal data, it was reported.
The US DOJ is too corrupt to do the same thing in the US. The US DOJ offered Hunter a deal where he would be forgiven of any crimes for life. Even the Democrat judge wasn’t having this.
This is the difference between a banana republic and a constitutional Republic.
