El prucés ya no interesa. Ahora hablan de los Pujol, Andorra y … mucho dinero.
El New York Times, el Financial Times y el Wall Street Journal ya se hacen eco de las andanzas de los Pujol. Como toda la familia está implicada, hasta se confunden entre Oriol y Jordi Jr. Pero aciertan en lo fundamental: “dinero escondido”, “cuentas offshore”, “había negado previamente que lo tuviera”, “comisiones”, “fraude”, “sobornos”…
Pujol no sólo nos ha robado sino que ahora hunde también la imagen de Cataluña en el extranjero. Pasen y vean, esto es sólo el principio:
The New York Times
Mr. Pujol long ago retired from politics but remains an influential figure in Catalonia. He issued a statement on Friday saying he had hidden money in offshore accounts for more than three decades, having previously denied having any Swiss or other undeclared accounts overseas.
…But over the weekend, Catalan opposition politicians called for a new investigation into Mr. Pujol’s offshore money, to determine whether it was inherited or came from kickbacks from Mr. Pujol’s time running Catalonia’s regional government.
Mr. Pujol and some of his seven children have already been investigated for fraud. In 2012, El Mundo, a Madrid newspaper, said the Pujol family had 137 million euros, or about $184 million, hidden in a Geneva bank. Mr. Pujol tried to sue the newspaper for libel, but a judge rejected his lawsuit on the ground that the information was in the public interest and was based on a draft police report.
Separately, one of Mr. Pujol’s sons, Oriol Pujol, resigned this month from Convergence after he was indicted in a bribery investigation into the awarding of licenses to garages that conduct vehicle inspections. A former girlfriend of Oriol Pujol also recently testified that she had driven bags of money on his behalf to Andorra, a banking center across the Catalan border.”
