At a Status Conference conducted recently in US District Court in Miami, the October 11, 2022 jury trial of accused master colombian money launderer ALEX NAIN SAAB MORAN was cancelled. The listed grounds shown was the generic "Ends of Justice." An evidentiary hearing on the defendant's Motion to Dismiss has been set for August 29, and at the end of that hearing, if necessary, the trial date will be rescheduled.
Rumours that Saab negotiated and finalized a plea agreement before his extradition to the United States continue to circulate. Potential targets of Saab's testimony in Venezuela, Malta and Antigua have expressed fears that they will end up in a superseding indictment in the Miami case, and that the defendant will, as the result of his cooperation, end up with a relatively short sentence.
