PP financier’s sister asks Azuda judge to return money from her safe

The sisters of businessman Vicente Prieto, president of the defunct construction company Secopsa, want to return the €380,000 that the Guardia Civil’s Central Operations Unit (UCO) found in two safe deposit boxes during the recording of the Azuda case. Maria Amparo Prieto was the owner of a safe in a bank that contained 300,000 euros. His sister Maria del Carmen kept 80,000 euros in “high-value banknotes”, according to the order of the head of the Valencian Court of Instruction No. 13, which appears in the summary of the “Azuda case” to which elDiario is involved. access .is.

Each owns an 8.98% stake in Saprico, the defunct Secopsa construction company under investigation and led by Vicente Prieto. The firm received nearly 100 million euros in awards from the Consistory between 2006 and 2008 alone. As a rebound, he invested in Rita Barber’s 2007 re-election campaign through the Laterne Group, which was proven by an investigation into Part A of the “Towla case” following a confession by a repentant.

The defense of Maria del Carmen Prieto, also accused in the Azuda case, demanded the return of the funds on appeal. However, the instructor believes that “even on her resource, she does not provide any data that allows you to verify the origin of the money.” Judge Pepa Tarodo recalls that “the need to keep money outside legal channels was a logical consequence of criminal activity” in the alleged corruption scheme.

In addition, the Internal Revenue Service is investigating “the intervention of a large amount of cash.” The woman, adds Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Pablo Ponce, has not proven the “origin and traceability” of the funds contained in the envelopes.

The tax office, acting as judicial assistance, will not return 380,000 euros in cash, but must determine the possible legalization of funds.

Lawyer Francisca Ríos, who is in charge of the defense of Maria del Carmen Prieto, regrets in her appeal the “sealing and retention” of the safe in the name of her client at the Caixabank headquarters at Calle del Pintor Sorolla, number 2 in Valencia.

The memo asserts “absolute defenselessness” and reproaches the judge for suggesting that the money was “illegal in origin solely because it was not invested in a financial product that does not bring benefits.” “The money was deposited with the bank, not buried in the garden,” the lawyer says, referring to “large bills” in envelopes hidden in the safe.
