The Special Security and Intelligence Commission, headed by Iván Simonovis, reported that it has processed 189 cases of corruption that occurred in Venezuela.
“So far we have 189 registered cases and of these 80% are related to corruption, the rest is terrorism, drug trafficking, violation of human rights and money laundering,” he said through his Twitter account.
Simonovis assured that one of the most important aspects is that the Special Security Commission has been able to create at least 277 links with the defendants, which have made it possible to identify companies and individuals involved in the regime’s acts of corruption.
“We identified family members, associates or friends who collaborate in these corrupt operations, that before were not on the radar of our investigations but now are,” he said.
The Commissioner added that although many cases were already being processed, the new information has allowed the files to be more detailed.
Finally, Simonovis reiterated that the Commission will continue to work diligently and silently to fight corruption in Venezuela.
“I want to congratulate you for the courage to make the report and, secondly, thank you for sharing this valuable information with us,” he concluded.
Last March, the Special Security Commission created a web page where anyone with new information about acts of corruption by the dictatorship can report anonymously and thus create files in order to bring those responsible to justice.
