the Government's judicial strategy against former President Mauricio Macri
, former Finance Minister
and the rest of his economic team in the investigation that the Executive pushes on the destination of the IMF disbursements for U $$ 44 billion dollars.
Official sources consulted by
assure that the Treasury procurement by Zannini would be
the natural instance
for the Executive to advance in a complaint against the political and economic leaders of the largest loan in the history of the multilateral credit organization after the head of
announced on Monday in front of the Legislative Assembly a "criminal complaint" against those responsible "for the greatest fraudulent administration and the greatest embezzlement of funds that our memory registers."
The Central Bank could also be a plaintiff to have access to the case and they seek that, if irregularities in the granting of credit are found, the former officials respond with their assets.
Former secretary of Legal and Technical during the 12 years of Kirchnerism and a member of the small table of Néstor and Cristina Kirchner since the times of Santa Cruz, Zannini, is the head of the state attorneys and was splashed in the last days after It transpired that he and his wife
were vaccinated against the coronavirus
despite not appearing on any priority list.
"Zannini is a high official of the State, if he has any health problem it is a problem for the State"
, justified the new Minister of Health Carla Vizzotti.
However, the former president of the Supreme Court of Santa Cruz at the time when Kirchner was governor was registered as "health personnel."
The Treasury Department also echoed the rumors and did not rule out that option.
If the versions are confirmed, Zannini would control the third complaint from the State involving Macri.
He is already pushing the case of Correo Argentino and the investigation into the money laundering of relatives of the former president.
The vice president's most trusted official spent 107 days in prison during Macri's administration, denounced for treason against the fatherland for being the author of the bill of the memorandum of understanding with Iran, a detail that the President recalled at the inauguration ceremony of the official.
In the Government they are also considering other options.
"The Treasury Office would be the natural place, but the Central Bank could also be the complainant," said a legal and political advisor to that institution.
The monetary authority, which had already published the report
on Foreign Exchange, Debt and Assets Formation Market 2015 - 2019,
asked SIGEN to carry out a specific audit of the documentation to assess the "responsibilities of the officials" who interceded in the agreement with the Fund.
He also went to the Anti-Corruption Office, an organization that, according to the judicial swords of macrismo, could concentrate the complaint against the former president.
The current general trustee of the Nation is
, a personal friend of the President since his time at the Law School.
The head of the OA is
, former prosecutor of the Legitimate Justice group, linked to Kirchnerism, who ordered the organization to abandon the complaints against Cristina Kirchner that it had initiated during the previous administration.
BCRA advisers last week asked the director of Banco Nación
Claudio Lozano for
a copy of the complaint of the only cause that already exists against Macri and his economic team for the crime and that fell first in the court of
María Eugenia Capuchetti
In the same case, former Finance Minister
Nicolás Dujovne and former BCRA presidents Guido Sandleris, Federico Sturzenegger and Luis Caputo
were also denounced
In addition, Lozano met in recent days with the director of the BCRA Betina Stein, who detected the alleged irregularities in the agreement between the IMF and Argentina that could motivate the state complaint.
Among them, the most important, according to official sources: the absence of an authorization from Congress to formalize the loan.
In an extensive media raid, Stein suggested on Tuesday that if it is proven that there was a breach of duties by the public official, the former officials involved
could have to respond with their assets
, in addition to facing possible prison sentences.
The government is fully convinced that the IMF broke its own statute to grant the
original loan of US $ 55 billion
That is why they propose to take the claim to the United Nations to turn it into a witness case, as ordered by
, in 2015, with vulture funds.
Officials in the economic area are not very sure about
how the official complaint
