Argentine Congress Demands Investigation into President Macri's Involvement in Panama Papers Scandal
Buenos Aires, April 5 (RHC), -- Members of the Front for Victory party, along with other minor political groups in Argentina's Congress, are demanding an investigation into President Mauricio Macri's ghost companies' operations in fiscal paradises.
In the release, the political alliances are lobbying for a special session to try and establish a commission to investigate offshore societies, and the president of Argentina is president of two such companies active in Panama City, one started in 1986, and the other in 1998.
The Mps also demanded, in writing, the resignation of Laura Alonso, head of the Anti-corruption Office, who remains loyal to the President, but whose duty is to investigate whether there have been any acts of corruption.
Front for Victory claims that the head of state is an associate in other offshore investments, one of them in Uruguay since 1995, and allegedly engaged in contraband.
On this matter, El Conurbano On Line stresses that the case Panama Papers also involves Macri's father, two brothers, his cousin, Jorge Macri, head of Vicente López Municipality, and the Mayor of Lanús, Néstor Grindetti, both in Buenos Aires province.
