Odebrecht also Unites the Venezuelan Family

More than 550 million U.S. dollars went through the cliff in some Pdvsa Agrícola (PDVSA Agriculture) facilities, which were partly built in four provinces of Venezuela. A new file of judicial documents and bank deposits of the Lava Jato operation -leaked for this report- involve Egly Ramírez (uncle of the former president of the state oil company and current ambassador of Venezuela to the United Nations, Rafael Ramírez) and other former officials in the biggest corruption scandal of recent years that established a systematic payment of bribes to people with responsibilities in the governments of Latin America, so that the Brazilian multinational could win the tenders.

The uncle of Venezuela's ambassador to the UN, Rafael Ramírez, also received commissions from Odebrecht. The giant of the Brazilian construction gave a slice of his bribes to Egly Ramírez and the rest of the board of directors of PDVSA Agrícola. In Brazil, they estimate that they diverted over US$ 30 million from the ethanol projects that Petróleos de Venezuela promised in four towns of the country.

PDVSA raised the flag of ethanol and renewable energy 10 years ago. In line with market trends, the state oil company drew the map of the country with 17 plants that used the soils of the tropics to transform sugarcane into fuel made in Venezuela. It promised a clean energy future from the hand of official Egly Antonio Ramírez Coronado, who turned out to be the uncle of the then president of PDVSA and also one of the many Latin American officials involved in the now infamous Lava Jato scandal.
