More Offshore Companies Linked to Macri Family
Buenos Aires, Dec 26 (Prensa Latina) The Panama Papers have revealed more offshore companies linked to President Mauricio Macri who''s linked to a new one now in New York.
Local media has reported that the Argentinean deputy for the opposing Frente Para La Victoria Dario Martinez will widen his accusation of money laundering against President Macri.
The accusation includes the involvement of 50 offshore companies (in Panama, Hong Kong, Bahamas, London, Belize, Dubai, Grand Cayman Island and Florida) linked with the Macri family and an account opened in New York under the name of the Argentinean President.
The account with Banca della Svizzera Italiana, based in New York has made transactions of over 50 million dollars.
Two transactions were made in 1992: one for 9.145 million dollars and another for 45.66 million.
From 1976 to 1999, some 20 offshore companies were set up and from 2000 to 2015 another 30.
'This shows that there has been very intense activity in the last 10 years,' said Martinez.
On December 17th, Argentinean media reported the news of other offshore firms linked to Macri's two brothers, who operate in Germany. The companies undertook suspicious transactions six days before the elections of 2015.
