Argentine Federal Judge Sebastian Casanello has sent legal requests to Uruguay, United Kingdom, Ireland, Panama and Brazil, and likewise ordered local financial institutions in the country to provide data on the Macri family accounts as part of an ongoing investigation of the Argentine president overseas assets in so called tax havens, which emerged from the latest release of Panama Papers by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

    Hey Thinky,

    Do you Think that now that the Panama papers are available online that you would be able to check them and confirm your previous claim that there was “Not one single Yankee name on them.”?

    You'll have to check every single record of course. :-D

    Or do you Think you'll admit that you told a porky?

    (I Think not)

    That proves it then!

    I challenged Think on his initial claim (since the papers were not available in searchable form at the time) and then again when the scale of the task required to check such a claim became apparent and at neither point did he admit he simply made it all up.

    What a Turnip! :-D

    One of president Mauricio Macri's main points while running against the Kirchnerist candidate was his promise to fight corruption.
    The dominant, concentrated media helped by spreading countless stories that created the impression of widespread corruption under the Kirchners' governments--such as Anibal Fernandez's ephedrine crime story (never mentioned again after the election), Axel Kicilloff's alleged salary as YPF director (inexistent) and Maximo Kirchner's off-shore secret accounts (denied by the bank in question).
    Now Macri hopes the matter of his off-shore activity will magically disappear and has chosen the ostrich strategy.
    As CFK put it recently: “They spent a lot of time looking for the 'K' money and ended up bumping into the 'M' money.”

    Except, so far, the “M money” appears to be legitimate actual M money, while the “K money” is actually Argentine taxpayer money.

    The other thing of course, when looking for money you'd obviously find the legal, legitimate money (such as Macri's) before you'd find the hidden, illegal money. So it could be argued that the “M money” was found before the “K money” because the former wasn't hidden, because it didn't need to be.

    Did you see the story about the K “hotel” that had had “full occupancy of government workers” that turned out to be an empty muddy field? Why go to the bother of actually building the hotels you are using to launder your money?

    I think you will find not all the K money has been stolen from the Argentine taxpayer,some of it will turn out to be “D” money or “T” money.
