Ordenan arresto de ex funcionarios de Guatemala

Malita Javier | 16 Julio, 2017, 12:05

Estas denuncias vuelven a estremecer las estructuras del poder político en Guatemala porque ratifican el enorme peso de la corrupción en la política, con el involucramiento de poderosas empresas en el financiamiento de partidos políticos, cuya dirigencia adquiere compromisos intolerables que solo se pueden solventar a cambio de concesiones ilegales u oficiosas, o de someter los bienes del Estado a intereses sectarios.

La red de corrupción estuvo comandada por Alejandro Sinibaldi, quien fue ministro de Comunicaciones e Infraestructura durante el gobierno del encarcelado ex presidente Otto Pérez Molina, quien gobernó el país vecino entre 2012 y 2015.

La investigación evidencia que Sinibaldi, que firmaba como "A.S" o "A.S.A." -sus iniciales-, daba órdenes para mantener este entramado en el que 8 conglomerados empresariales pagaban los sobornos a sus tres firmas fantasmas, que facturaban servicios no prestados.

Según la fiscalía, a través del tráfico de influencias Ligorría logró resolver un litigio entre las empresas de telefonía Tigo, propiedad del empresario guatemalteco Mario López, y Telgua, propiedad del magnate mexicano Carlos Slim. También están acusados de recibir financiamiento ilícito para el partido de gobierno de Pérez Molina.

Los más de 13 millones de dólares, que fueron lavados en Nicaragua a través de otra red de empresas de cartón con nombres similares a las de Guatemala, creada por la firma de abogados "Pacheco Coto", trabajaba con un esquema de préstamos a las compañías guatemaltecas para que esos fondos obtenidos en formas ilícitas aparecieran como fruto de actividades lícitas y circulasen sin problema en el sistema financiero.

En los operativos participaron fiscales y personal de la Comisión Internacional contra la Impunidad en Guatemala (Cicig).

CUBA sigue liderando; el SIC ganó el clásico

Sinibaldi ya es prófugo de la justicia por otro caso en su contra, también por hechos de corrupción.

Las autoridades localizaron viviendas, casas de playa, fincas, yates, aviones, helicópteros, vehículos y obras de arte que Sinibaldi habría adquirido con dinero del erario nacional y que según las autoridades entrarán en un proceso de extinción del dominio.

Las diligencias las realizaron en el departamento de Guatemala, Sacatepéquez e Izabal. En este caso están vinculadas 37 personas, de quienes hoy capturaron a 17 y fueron trasladadas a la Torre de Tribunales, entre ellos quien fue asistente de Sinibaldi, Aneliesse Mercedes Herrera Monterroso; además, 5 serán citados pues ya guardan prisión por otros casos y 15 están prófugos, entre ellos Sinibaldi y Ligorría. En julio Estados Unidos solicitó la extradición de la ex vicepresidenta bajo cargos de narcotráfico.
