PANAMA. David Murcia’s first asset to be put on sale will be the luxury yacht “Mopie”, which is currently sitting still in the Amador dock, said prosecutor Williams Parodi.

Waiting to be priced and sold are also 15 luxury cars belonging to the Colombian businessman, indicted in the US on money laundering charges.

The cars are under the custody of the National Police in their Ancon headquarters.

According to Parodi, the money recuperated on the sales will be used to pay back some of the victims of Murcia’s pyramid scheme (clients of the DMG company).

The prosecutor added that seven people are under investigation for the DMG case in Panama.

Meanwhile, the number of people complaining to be DMG victims hasrisen to 750, with more expected.

Victims of DMG’s scheme were not restricted to Panama City, with some reported in Colon, Chitre, and Chiriqui.

Parodi asks anyone who was wronged by DMG to report their case to the Public Ministry, to help the investigation run more smoothly.

He added: “A final report will tell us who are the people who money is owed to, and how much.”

Public Ministry auditors are currently heading that investigation.

Meanwhile, the Financial Investigation Service, a department within the Judicial Investigation Directive (DIJ), is in charge of crafting a report on all of the accounts and assets belonging to David Murcia, DMG, and any other possible operations they had in Panama.
