The Presidential Commissioner against Terrorism and Organized Crime, Carlos Paparoni, celebrated the validation of Alex Saab’s extradition to the United States by the Constitutional Court of Cape Verde.
Paparoni reported that Saab has legal processes open in the United States for money laundering, in Mexico and Colombia for fictitious imports and money laundering.
“Saab is responsible and the mastermind of some of the largest thefts in our nation. He stole the money that could have saved lives,” he said through his Twitter account.
The Commissioner recalled that since 2016, the Legitimate National Assembly has denounced and articulated international pressure against the front man of the dictatorship, Alex Saab and his criminal organization for being responsible for corruption and destruction of Venezuela, in addition to being the mastermind of the entire logistical and financial operation of the illegal exploitation of Venezuelan gold.
“We present in the international arena the evidence that links him to the regime, to the financing of terrorist groups, the payment of bribes, corruption, the importation of overpriced food and participation in the illegal sale of gold,” he said.
Mr. Paparoni reiterated that Cape Verde’s decision will mark the beginning of justice in Venezuela. “This is the future of our country,” he said.
