New scandal rubs salt into Santos electoral wounds

Monday, March 20, 2017

The 2010 campaign of Colombia President Juan Manuel Santos, already investigated for receiving illegal funds from bribery-stained multinational Odebrecht, also received funds from an investment company that embezzled hundreds of millions of dollars, according to the company’s imprisoned former director.

Now-liquidated Colombia brokerage firm InterBolsa payed $150,000 to the Santos campaign in 2010 to cover its advertising debts, ex-Interbolsa president Rodrigo Jaramillo told Colombian media Thursday.
