    That must have been a number of firsts for the argie police. Co-operating with a proper police agency, acting in accordance with real law, seeking evidence against real criminals, instead of obeying the orders of the 'government' to pursue political opponents and kicking indigenous people to death.

    One wonders all the same if Burzaco's links to the Clarinet group haven't contributed to prosecutorial zeal.

    @5 No but he resigned as Middle East 'Peace' Envoy so we live in hope that he has developed a conscience and will one day pay the price.

    The British do not have a strong enough judiciary or institutions to try their own leaders. It will have to be a third nation that does their job for them.

    How can sums in the rank of hundreds of millions change hands with no control is a show of a system totally corrupted, unwilling to control the flows of illegal money.
    Argentina officials asked FIFA, in 2004 and again in April 2015, to implement controls to stop money laundering and tax evasion through the “fiscal paradises” that have become the soccer clubs.
    Joseph Blatter himself promised to provide financial information as Argentina requested, but in the end did not do a thing.
    And the show continues.

    Obviously the K will try to get their cut before they're turned over to the USA.
    My guess is they didn't pay the coimas all the way up and everyone is pissed they didn't get their cut.
    More to come tho..
    Let's see how high it goes...

    “Argentina officials asked FIFA, in 2004 and again in April 2015, to implement controls to stop money laundering and tax evasion . . . .”

    LOL

    The soccer apparatus was obviously over taxing the existing money laudering system to the detriment and possible point of exclusion of the K-swine/perronista dog's own money laudering efforts. The K-swine/perronista dogs requests of Bladder were but an effort to secure their
    own money laundering efforts. [The soccer machine couldn't have forgot to make their own payoffs to the K's - could they?]

    Naysayers try by all means to make Argentina look bad no matter what it does.
    However, they cannot hide the fact that Argentina's Association of Fútbol Argentino voted against Blatter's re-election.

    So if Argentina requests the FIFA to control the money going around this, in your warped logic, shows how bad “the perronists” are?
    Give me a break.
    You surely can do better than post that for all to see.

    Here's, again, a chronic display of originality. Cut and paste.

    Off topic, but with reference to the Argentine judiciary system, a video aired last night of the crowd of idiots in Nisman's apartment when his body was discovered. Even the prosecutor wore no gloves and the blood covered gun was washed and cleaned with toilet paper. When Berni the Secretary of Security asked the prosecutor if they should make sure he was dead, she said she had more important things to do....what a disgrace.

    CLARIFICATION
    For the last 10 days or so, a poster nicknamed Chronic has been posting an excerpt of a post of mine—out of context. (See #4, #12 and #14).
    Unable to cope with dissent, this individual has resorted to harassment and abuse of this forum. I am reproducing below the conversation from which he extracted the misleading statement:

    EM: “I am totally humbled by such a thoughtful statement. Here It is, all the issues of a nation of forty-some million people explained in just seven words. We are all liars. We should realize that, become a protectorate and name Conqueror as Minister of the Truth. Finally, all will be solved.”
