The Seventh Anti-Corruption Prosecutor ordered the arrest of Salomon Jack Btesh and Valentín Martínez Vásquez in the investigation carried out for the alleged commission of the crime of money laundering by transfers from the investment account of Jal Offshore Ltd. in Financial Pacific ( FP).
The arrests of Btesh and Martínez occurred after they surrendered to the prosecution last Wednesday. Both were taken to the cells of the Judicial Investigation Directorate (DIJ) in Ancón.
While yesterday Harry Nessin came to testify , whom his lawyer Samuel Quintero identified as a dealer dedicated to the sale of construction materials and decoration.
Quintero explained that his client is linked because he paid within a transaction he made as a merchant with a check from FP. It was a check for $ 130 thousand.
He assured that Nessin made a legal operation and that it is allowed within the rules of commerce.
