Azevedo tried to pass unnoticed. Little is known about the managing director of
Odebrecht in Venezuela —who due to his access to Chávez regime authorities and
his plenipotentiary manners, is known by some as the Viceroy of Odebrecht— since
his appearance on December 15, 2016 before the Brazilian authorities. There, he
confessed that they even forged Government documents and budgets. He recalled
about no-bid contracts arbitrarily assigned and mentioned parallel pays for
managers who speeded up payments.
he failed to say that he had shared bank accounts in Switzerland with one of the
commissioners he accused.
Prazeres de Azevedo appears in three bank accounts in Switzerland which he
shared with Venezuelan lawyer Héctor Joseph Dáger Gaspard, whom he pointed out
one and a half year ago as one of the commissioners he had recruited to get the
government of President Hugo Chávez to reduce the resources owed for works, like
the promised and still unfinished hydroelectric dam of Tocoma, in the south of
the country, in the State of Bolívar.
