Spanish term or phrase: envia a / a
En enero 4 de 1999 el bufete de abogados envia a ETB la siguiente informacion sobre SAVILLE a Mark Roberts:

-Servicios que provee
-Ingresos trimestrales

On January 4, 1999 the law firm sent the following information regarding SAVILLE to Mark Roberts?

I'm not sure how to fit ETB (a company) in here - the only possibility I can think of is that Mark Roberts (not the actual name in the text) works at ETB and the information was sent directly to him? The fact that ETB is in Colombia and the person's name is very much an English name makes me wonder...but I don't see how to fit in the fact that the law firm sent the info. to ETB and to Mark Roberts. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance

It might be a good idea to put in a [sic] so they don\'t blame the translator for the bad writing.

ETB probably forwarded it to Mark, but the ETB address was used for his correspondence in that country, which is not so strange.
