    However the head of the office, no names were given is ‘on the run’. Alhec Group which apparently is also involved in the foreign money exchange business in Argentina (which is strictly regulated) also has “close links with the majority of Argentine clubs”.

    Which also means they have close links to the government and TMBOAs bank deposits.

    Does anybody really see this going anywhere?

    Great chances are that the same money laundering motion is carry out in several other south american countries and possible in other countries of the world as well.
    Illegal money is easly blended in weak countries economy causing negative impact locally, core reason why law enforcement must act upon it is detected, otherwise, the country can be clasified as “heaven” from those who practice illicit activities , while the correct way is to cut its transactions as Swiss goverment is inforcing right this moment.
