That same business, the PT was convicted of 3 times have practiced money laundering between 8 October 2009 up until 2017.

Confession

"O sr. understands that gave ownership of the apartment for President?”, asked Lula Cristiano Zanin Martins lawyer.

The Solaris building was the Housing Cooperative Bank (Bancoop), cooperative founded in the years 1990 a core PT. In financial difficulty, the Bancoop transferred to the OAS unfinished projects, which caused the revolt of thousands of cooperative - they protest in court that the contractor charged values ​​far above the prediction contract. The former PT treasurer João Vaccari Neto was president of Bancoop.

The former first lady Marisa Letícia (dead in 2017) signed Declaration of Compliance and Participation Commitment to Bancoop and acquired 'a quota-part to the implementation of the project then called Cantabrian Sea', current Solaris, in April 2005.

In 2009, the Bancoop transferred the project to the OAS and gave two options to members: request the return of funds paid in the venture or acquire a unit of OAS, by a preset value, using, as part payment, the amount already paid to the Cooperative. In 2015, Marisa Letícia asked refund of the amounts placed in the enterprise.

According to Léo Pinheiro, the first conversation with Vaccari on the triplex occurred in 2009.

"João Vaccari talked to me, saying that this apartment, the family had the option of an apartment type, I had bought shares and such, but that apartment they had bought was released to market I. And it was marketed and sold. E or triplex, I did not do nothing on marketing term ", said.
