Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes lots of time. Visiting media looking for a quick run down on Venezuela's gargantuan corruption, have the decency to at least cite the source when plagiarising this site's content without attribution (exhibit Reuters here and here, exhibit Bloomberg here, exhibit OCCRP here). To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism, help us expose rampant corruption. Note added 28/06/2021: impostors are using INFODIO's former editor's full name, and a fake email address (alek.boyd.arregui at to send copyright infringement claims / take down requests to web hosting companies (exhibit Hostgator). The attempt is yet another effort paid by corrupt thugs to erase information about their criminal activities. has no issues with other websites / journalists using / posting information published here, so long as the source is properly cited.

Source: DoJ to unseal indicments

A source has told this site the U.S. Department of Justice is to unseal indicments, related to Alejandro Andrade's corruption racket when heading Venezuela's Banco del Tesoro. Up to nine people are said to be part of criminal probe about to be revealed. It goes back to the times of Leonardo Gonzalez Dellan, all the way to Andrade's multibillion dollar schemes with Raul Gorrin. Sources familiar with the case informed Gorrin is also an unindicted co-conspirator (no. 7) in Francisco Convit and Matthias Krull $1.2 billion money laundering scheme. Meanwhile Andrade's glorified PA (Claudia Diaz Guillen) extradition to Venezuela was approved by Spain's Audiencia Nacional on 26 October. Diaz Guillen remains without passport, remanded in Madrid. Husband Adrián Velásquez's hearing -on extradition request- is to be held on 16th November.
