Cristina Fernandez scandal: Money funneling charges, scandal denied by leader

A Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner scandal has made its way back into the headlines this week, as the political leader is saying in response to claims of corruption and money funneling that she is being defamed and slandered by the media. The woman also experienced serious surgery a few months back that involved skull drilling and thyroid cancer rumors, keeping the Argentinean political figure one that frequently stays in the news. The Inquisitr offers what details are known on the criminal allegations at this time this Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013.

The Cristina Fernandez scandal came about after tabloids continually asserted that this leading female of the government of Argentina was involved in tax evasion, illicit enhancement policies, and money laundering. A majority of the claims focus explicitly on Lazaro Baez, whose different businesses have been especially successful in public contracts with the country’s government while the Kirchner family was in power.

Now, Argentinean officials are saying that they are looking into these criminal allegations of money funneling and misconduct with Baez’ government contracts.

“Americans are used to hearing about the “revolving door” of Washington politics, but in this case the La Nacion newspaper is alleging that Baez has been funneling taxpayer money back to Cristina Fernandez, which isn’t considered a grey area no matter what country you’re living in. The Argentinian president has several private businesses, one of which apparently is a hotel chain. According to La Nacion, Baez’s companies have been reserving a third of the hotel rooms whether or not they ever get used. They’ve also been propping up the state-controlled company Aerolineas in the same manner despite the airline continuing to lose money.”

In reaction to the Cristina Fernandez scandal, the political figure has asked her presidential secretary, Mr. Oscar Parilli, to offer an official comment on the issue. She continues to deny these allegations, and Parilli has said that the scandal rumors are unfounded and utterly false live on air.

“The false reports by the daily La Nacion, later repeated incessantly once again by Clarin… try to put in doubt the legitimacy, legality and honesty of the private economic acts of the Presidents Nestor Carlos Kirchner and Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.”
