Venezuelan businessman linked to corruption cases fired from Plus Ultra . board of directors
Plus Ultra airline removed Pedro Antonio Porques Tarf from its board of directors on Friday, one of the Venezuelan businessmen who attended the company’s 2018 capital increase that pumped 1.2 million euros. This investor appears in the so-called “Paradise Papers”, the investigation about “offshore companies” revealed by various international media, Vozpoli.
Burkes has been director of the Anne Milken Foundation since 2015, which was set up in Barbados in 2009, according to the records of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). “The records themselves, which were released under the name Paradise Papers, do not specify a deadline for the company,” explains reporter Beatriz Triguero.
Already in November 2018, Plus Ultra held the “Ordinary General Shareholders Meeting at which the number of Board members was set at ten, unanimously appointing Borquez Tarff as Director of the Company for a term of six years, until 2024”.
However, Vozpópuli verified that “the dismissal of the businessman associated with a company residing in a tax haven was published in the Commercial Register on August 19”.
