The Third Liquidator Court will hold a hearing on Tuesday, June 1 with 42 people accused of alleged money laundering through the Lava Jato (car wash) operation.

Among the defendants are Jürgen Mossack and Ramón Fonseca Mora, from the defunct law firm Mossack Fonseca, which is linked to the creation of offshore companies through which large sums of money were allegedly deposited to acquire real estate to launder the money the product of the payment of bribes.

The investigation began in 2014 when the Brazilian authorities that carried out the Lava Jato operation discovered that María Mercedes Riaño, an employee of Mossack Fonseca, was contacted for the creation of companies whose objective was to mobilize illegal funds.

The then Brazilian judge Sergio Moro, a key player in the corruption investigations in Brazil, assured that there was “evidence that Mossack Fonseca has provided the necessary services for the opening of offshore companies for, at least, four agents involved in the scheme to launder money ”.

As a result of this, then-attorney general Kenia Porcell announced the opening of an investigation for alleged money laundering.

La Prensa  reports that the court has not yet released details of where the hearing will be held and whether it will be in person or virtual.
