AS far as family businesses go, Pujol and Sons was a success for all the wrong reasons.

The eldest son of Catalunya’s former president Jordi Pujol doled out millions of corrupt money to his six siblings over the last 25 years, it has been revealed.

A High Court investigation has discovered that Jordi Pujol Ferrusola handled more than €40 million through ten different bank accounts in Andorra.

His father, Jordi Pujol Soley, who led Catalunya between 1980 and 2003, resigned all his honorary positions last year after admitting he had kept an undeclared fortune in tax havens for more than three decades.

Since then, investigators have continued to reveal more about his alleged money laundering and tax evasion.

Police said the Andorra bank reports indicate huge illicit gains, with one showing a €500,000 transfer to a Dutch company owned by businessman John Rosillo.

This same man was jailed for six years in 1999 for huge real estate fraud, and in 2007 was found dead in a hotel in Panama.

  1. Keeping it in the family. So, where is all the money now, and is this fraudster in prison? Oh look, the Catalan government has declared this a “private matter” and he has renounced all his honorary titles and the academic centre started in his name has been closed. So everything’s ok then. Justice in Spain in a nutshell. This has tarnished Mas and the independence issue.

  2. This man Jordi Pujol Started thinking he was Napolian but used his Adolf Hitler methods to poison the minds of the youth of Catalunya in order to fill his own pockets nothing more and nothing less a disgrace. But as we all know these people never get the punishment that they deserve.
