Carlos Paparoni, deputy and president of the Finance Commission of the National Assembly (NA), confirmed on Tuesday the incorporation of Raúl Gorrin and Alex Saab to the list of sanctioned persons of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Aid (TIAR).
“For every weak person they manage to buy, they will find thousands of us willing to confront them. They are not going to get away with it, criminals,” added the congressman through his personal Twitter account.
The representative in the Office of Regional Cooperation against Money Laundering and Corruption has been working to identify, block accounts and detain those involved in corrupt businesses related to the delivery of CLAP food boxes.
Parliamentarian Freddy Superlano previously reported that the Mexican and Peruvian Attorney General’s Offices were asked for the relevant documents proving Alex Saab’s acts of corruption and the CLAP box system, thus generating more pressure on those involved in the case.
Alex Saab is a Colombian businessman involved in the corruption network scandal in the CLAP system. He is in charge of supplying the products that the Nicolas Maduro’s regime distributes through the program which are of low quality and are invoiced at a high markup.
For his part, Raúl Gorrín is the owner of the television channel Globovisión and was charged in November 2018 by the United States for allegedly paying bribes to senior government officials and helping to launder assets.
