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.
