Alex Saab in prison during hearing with Judge O. Sullivan (Florida Federal Court)
The Colombian businessman, Alex Saab, alleged front man of Nicolás Maduro, pleaded “not guilty” this Monday, November 15, to the money laundering charges in the United States. This during the hearing that takes place in the federal courtroom in Miami (Florida).
Saab’s lawyer, Neil Schuster, addressed the court as a representative of what he called a “diplomat of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela” and, followed by this, declared his innocence before the US authorities. Let us remember that the Barranquilla man is accused of laundering about 350 million dollars of state contracts in order to build houses for the Venezuelan regime.
