According to the United States Department of Justice publication, from March 2018 to November 2019, Alvarenga owned and operated a currency exchange business in the Republic of Paraguay. It was not licensed or registered to operate as a money transmission business under the laws of the United States or the State of New Jersey.
The Association of Exchange Houses of Paraguay (ACCP), is called to silence on the Rodrigo Alvarenga Paredes case, a businessman dedicated to the field who confessed in the United States to having carried out money laundering in complicity with Cynthia Tarragó.
Rogelio Welko, vice president of the Board of Directors, stated that since he is no longer president, he can no longer give statements. However, after being asked to pass on some contact from a union spokesperson who could give a reflection on the case, he simply refused to respond.
