Bank records show money transfer to Correa, presumably from FARC

According to “The FARC Files: Venezuela, Ecuador and the Secret Archive of ‘Raúl Reyes,’”  based on archives found on the computers of the diseased FARC leader, Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa received $400,000 dollars from the FARC for his 2006 presidential campaign. According to the book’s conclusion, though Correa approved the incoming funds, the transaction never resulted in policies that aided the FARC.

Of course, Quito denied the allegations and said the data is fabricated. Correa said he “wouldn’t take 20 cents” from the group. He also said he would willingly take a lie-detector test.

But, as the book points out, Ecuadorean bank records show his campaign received a $100,000 transfer right about the same time FARC e-mail messages said such a contribution was being made.
