An investigation in the margin of the judicial fair complicates the government of Mauricio Macri by the scandal of the Argentine Mail. Federal prosecutor Gerardo Pollicita has claimed the statement by former Communications Minister and current Defense Minister Oscar Aguad for validating the agreement that tried to forgive the state's debt to the company owned by the Macri family for more than 70 million. weights.
The measure is part of the criminal case brought by Judge Ariel Lijo for alleged fraudulent administration because of government support for the pact that was agreed in February 2017 but did not materialize due to prosecutor Gabriela Boquín's complaint.
Aguad is part of the cause because it was in the (former) Ministry of Communications, where an attempt was made to cancel the millionaire debt. Also mentioned was Juan Manuel Mocora, a former legal affairs official at the Ministry of Communications, the chairman of Correo Jaime Robirosa and Leonardo Kleidermacher, a legal adviser. President Mauricio Macri is also charged, but he was the only one who did not receive a summons.
Pollicita pointed out in the judicial filing that there are sufficient elements to support that, with the conclusion of the agreement, "they abused the public administration with the interest of benefiting the company Correo Argentino SA", a company of Grupo Macri.
The promoter stressed that there are elements that complicate the people involved and that "allow you to attribute participation in the maneuver". Referring in particular to Aguad, he stressed that the official "failed to act with the loyalty and diligence of a good businessman" and eventually forced the public administration "to accept an abusive withdrawal of his credit in the interest of benefiting the company involved and for which he had the necessary contribution from his spouses. "
"In fact, the evidence gathered reflects that the conditions agreed for the cancellation of the credit verified by the National State in the aforementioned competition did not in any way crystallize the effort of the extended wait nor even were close to the meaning for the National State of maintaining a reasonable payment agreement, "he said in the 59-page letter.
