The Office of the Attorney General and the National Police seized 1,396 assets, including apartments, farms, livestock, vehicles and Ecopetrol’s shares which would have been acquired by ‘La Constru’ in Bogotá, Quindío, Valle del Cauca, Caquetá, Putumayo, Huila, Tolima, Nariño and Cundinamarca. A cocaine production laboratory was found during proceedings.
The arrests of the leaders of ‘La Constru’ revealed an illegal fortune that was allegedly in the name of some of his wives, children, parents, brothers and cousins from the end of the nineties to date.
The accounting and tax analysis allowed to identify that 13 relatives of different ringleaders of this criminal structure, allegedly purchased, concealed and economically exploited luxurious houses, livestock, gas stations and shares, among other assets.
The Office of the Attorney General and the National Police, through Dijin, established that the millionaire fortune that was detected would be the result of drug trafficking, homicides, extortion and kidnappings, among other activities that the criminal apparatus of ‘La Constru’ committed in Putumayo, Amazonas, Caquetá, Huila, Valle del Cauca and Nariño. Additionally, they found that the alleged owners did not have stable economic activities or bank credits that justified the purchase and ownership of the properties.
