President Uribe announced that he would give his income tax returns to the solicitor general to prove he has no link to DMG
“My sons are not corrupt, my sons do not traffic with influences, my sons are not lazy, my sons are not spoiled. My sons are workers”, said Uribe to journalists.
Uribe’s declarations come at a time where the opposition has questioned him because one of his sons, Jeronimo, would have had commercial relations in 2006 with the business that was illegally attracting investments, DMG, closed by the government on November 17th and later accused by the attorney general’s office of crimes like money laundering and illegal enrichment.
It was the owner and creator of DMG, David Murcia himself, who a couple of weeks ago said during a radio interview with W Radio that one of his television production companies had had contact with Jeronimo to make a documentary about handicrafts in Colombia. Since the sons of president Uribe have a company called Salvarte that sells these kinds of carftwork. Jeronimo has assured that the documentary was never settled upon or carried out.
