Johana Ivette León, the wife of David Murcia, was captured in Uruguay under a petition of the Colombian National Prosecutor for the accusation of money laundering. Murcia is the author of the possible biggest fraud in the history of Colombia and even Latin America by the Pyramid or Ponzi system, according to the accusation of the authorities.
David Murcia was captured by the Panamanian police when he was trying to cross to Costa Rica to avoid any extradition to the Colombian authorities. Like Uruguay, Costa Rica has not extradition agreements with Colombia.
At the moment, Murcia is facing charges of money laundering, fraud and illegal enrichment, while thousand of persons wait to recovery the funds they invest in the D.M.G. Grupo Holding S.A., the company he created to offer astonishing interests that attracted many people, especially from poor areas and farmers.
By her part, Johana Ivette León, the Murcia’s wife, went to Uruguay where the Uruguayan police captured her last week. The problem now is that among the two South American nations there is not a extradition agreement and then she can not be sent to Bogotá so easy as it was with Murcia from Panama.
The Colombian Prosecutor is studying ways to bring the “wife” of the possibly biggest Colombian fraud in history. One way could be to ask Uruguay her expel from the country, because it is not possible to follow a formal deportation of León.
The Colombian Prosecutor sent to Montevideo all the files proven the accusation against her for money laundering. By its part, the Uruguayan authorities should proceed to a consequent investigation on the business made by León in that country.
