Former Vice-President Liberman said he had not been aware of the publication until a former employee brought it to his attention, and denied any relationship with Modern Plastics.

“I have nothing to do with that company, absolutely nothing. When the company was founded by my brother he put me there (an office of the company) as an alternate and did not know it still existed for years. This is all I can say, because I do not know the details, ” Liberman told CRHoy over the telephone.

According to information from the Registry of Commerce of El Salvador, Modern Plastics had been registered in that country since 2008. In Costa Rica, Luis Liberman’s brother also has a similar company, known as Modern Plastics.
