The newly created second prosecutor specializing in organized crime and the special unit on offenses involving money laundering and financing of terrorism carried out an inspection Tuesday afternoon of the main offices of the firm Mossack Fonseca.

The inspection was organized by Prosecutor Javier Caraballo. The public prosecutor's office reported that staff of the firm would not be "collaborating with the prosecutor" in the inspection of the offices, located in Marbella area.

That would be "delaying" the process, it was reported. Also participating were officers from the Department of Forensic Computer Science of the Institute of Forensic Medicine as well as staff of the financial analysis unit of the Department of Judicial Investigation (DIJ).

 

"They performed judicial diligence with the purpose of obtaining documentation related to information published in news articles that establishes the possible use of the law firm in illicit activities," reported the public prosecutor's office in a statement.

Members of the police proceeded to move to a group of "collaborators" to the office headquarters in an adjacent building. After a few hours, at 6:40 p.m., they were informed that they could leave.

Several police vehicles were parked in front of the building, while agents were located at different points. At 7:10 p.m., the public prosecutor's office reported that the inspection at the headquarters of the law firm took place at the same time other agent conducted an inspection of a facility that provides backup computer services for the firm. Last Monday, there was an inspection of the offices by Ricauter González.

That inspection, by the prosecutor that specializes in the theft of intellectual property, was related to a complaint filed by Mossack over the theft of their computer files.
