Samark López –Favorite Trader of Chavism

The inclusion of the Venezuelan businessman in the list of drug traffickers and money launderers in the United States of America reveals the plot of his business with Nicolás Maduro’s regime. First, he sold kits for the government's housing building programs. Then, he benefited from the massive sale of food and even Christmas decorations; all this through a structure that has found, to date, shelter in the jurisdiction of Barbados. The small Caribbean island acts as the lair that hides some of its assets to the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

It is no longer anonymous. Days ago, Samark José López Bello stopped being a stranger doing business and fortune. The sanction that the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury announced on February 13, 2017, points him directly as the frontman or figurehead of the Vice President of the Republic, Tareck El Aissami, and connects them to drug trafficking. López Bello became a public man for Venezuelans, who unknowingly decorated their homes with Christmas trees that the businessman sold through the government.

Yes. The man who the U.S. authorities have just blocked 13 properties in different jurisdictions of the world, the one they accuse of being the "financial support" and the man "acting on behalf" of El Aissami, negotiated Christmas trees in November with the government of Nicolás Maduro, who frequently complains about the public coffers running dry of dollars after the drop of oil revenues.
