Tweets fly as Odebrecht ‘bagman’ heads cozy lunch
Santo Domingo.- Ángel Rondón, Odebrecht’s admitted “bagman” in the US$92.0 million in bribes paid to Dominican Govt. officials, met Monday with his lawyers, a top lawmaker and a prominent journalist, prior to a hearing 10am Tuesday when a judge will rule on the prosecution’s request to extend the deadline to complete the investigation.
It emerged that Chamber of Deputies president, Rubén Maldonado, former deputy Ruddy González, also indicted in the corruption case, and journalist Dany Alcántara, among others presumably Róndon’s lawyers gathered in the posh restaurant La Cassina.
The meeting in the restaurant was reportedly revealed by investigative journalist Nuria Piera through a tweet.
Afterwards, Alcántara also tweeted two photos with the message “images of my lunch with Ángel Rondón and his lawyers.”
