Operation Myriad morphs from ‘a few dirty Portuguese Commandos’ to €27 million money-laundering machine

Bit by bit the full filthy truth about Operation Myriad is seeping out and gathering up ‘arguidos’ (official suspects).

The notion that this was a scheme cooked up by a few dirty commandos is now long-gone.

Myriad appears to be an intricate network of shell companies and businesses acting as fronts for a massive money-laundering machine serving high-flying Angolans.

Even defence minister João Gomes Cravinho has admitted that had he known back in 2019 what he knows now he would certainly have informed the prime minister and president when the alert came through (click here).

Says Expresso, the trafficking operation in diamonds, gold and drugs appears to have laundered €27 million from Angola.
