Haiman El Troudi Has no One to Investigate Him

The judicial authorities of Switzerland found a connection between the wife and the mother-in-law of the former Venezuelan minister with at least 40 million dollars deposited in eight bank accounts, one of which was shared with one of the main negotiators of bribes and kickbacks between Odebrecht and the governments of Chávez and Maduro. Although they asked the Venezuelan justice to investigate the matter, the courts denied any possibility of addressing the case and the Venezuelan Prosecutor's Office, led by Tarek William Saab, acts as if not aware.

The former Minister of Land Transport and Public Works, Haiman El Troudi, was not even investigated. They passed him by. The Bolivarian justice has just held his family harmless, despite the fact that alarms went off last year in Switzerland, when the names of his wife and his mother-in-law appeared in a tangle of bank accounts that received suspicious business transfers from offshore companies linked to Odebrecht.

Judge Luis Argenis Marcano Sarabia —in charge of the Eleventh Court of First Instance in Regulatory Matters of Caracas— held them harmless through a ruling that ignores the investigations in Switzerland that found the Venezuelan women María Baptista and Elita Zacarías -wife and mother-in-law of the official - as holders, beneficiaries or, at least, with authorized signature in eight bank accounts that total more than 40 million dollars.
