“All that has been published in the press is false, ridiculous and could have been expected, since they are planned lies”, said Maximo “All that has been published in the press is false, ridiculous and could have been expected, since they are planned lies”, said Maximo

Maximo Kirchner, son of Argentine president Cristina Fernandez has strongly denied as “false and ridiculous” news published in Buenos Aires daily Clarin and Brazil's magazine Veja alleging he had secret accounts in the US and Cayman Islands holding millions of dollar.

 “All that has been published in the press is false, ridiculous and could have been expected, since they are planned lies. There are no 'mistakes' or sources checked in what has been published, all has been carefully planned and directed by the media groups” said Maximo Kirchner in a release from the province of Santa Cruz where he lives.

The son of the Kirchner couple added that these operations now exceed the national scenario (Argentina) and can be published “because of the international rights that protect the noble trade of journalism” and ironically claimed that “ignoring the harm they cause they hide behind catastrophe headings alleging the person involved has one or several accounts in banks and cities I've never been to or heard off”.

Under the heading or “More of the same”, the release insists on the 'ridiculous and absurd' of the claims from 'reliable sources', but “to be expected since one is defenseless against these grand fables by those who have a license to lie”.

“Unfortunately journalists have become mere shorthand writers of a planned script to harm or try to break the spirit of those who think differently, act differently and above all, live under different principles”, concludes Maximo after enumerating a long list of false accusations about him.

    Maximo, a word of advice, if you truly believe that the accusations regarding foreign bank account are untrue you can always sue the newspapers in the courts. Oh I forgot your Mother decreed that the laws of “ slander and libel ” do not apply in Argentina. What a truly fuc**d up country. No wonder the Nisman case will never be solved. Too many people with fingers in the pie and accusations flyng around.
