Lusa - Business News - Angola: Spanish state company pays millions to former president’s foundation




Madrid, Nov. 13 (Lusa) – A Spanish court has found alleged payments of millions of euros from a Spanish public company to a foundation belonging to the former president of Angola, Jose Eduardo dos Santos, Spanish daily newspaper El Mundo said.
The Spanish anti-corruption prosecutor was investigating a commission payment made by the company Mercasa to the foundation named after Jose Eduardo dos Santos which may total €10 million in a deal worth €533 million, to build a market in the Angolan capital, Luanda.
The plaintiffs’ lawyers said it was not a large sum of money because part of the contract was cancelled, but even in the most conservative scenario, the commission paid would not have been less than €6 million.
The 2% that was earmarked for the then president was taken from Angolan public funds paid to the public-private consortium of Mercasa that built the market.
The funds were diverted through an intermediary in Angola, Guilherme Taveira Pinto, whose home, in Linda-a- Velha, Portugal, was searched in 2014 in relation to a case of sale of weapons from a Spanish company to Angola, where he also acted as an intermediary and in which €100 million disappeared.
The suspect, who is in Angola on the run from an international arrest warrant, sent the money he received on to the foundation.
