Former Finance Minister

Alfonso Prat Gay

came out to respond to the criticism he received from Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and accused her of being

the one who "leaked more dollars than 99% of the individuals who did so" during the Cambiemos government.

.

"If you are looking for those who 'escaped the dollars' during the previous government, start with your boss, the first to confess,"

wrote Prat Gay on his Twitter account, in which he also published a fragment of the book "Sincerely" by the former president in which she revealed that, at the beginning of 2016, she decided to

dollarize all her holdings on a fixed term

.

The former head of the Central Bank referred to the criminal complaint that the government of Alberto Fernández promoted to investigate the former officials of Cambiemos for alleged irregularities in the administration of the around 44,000 million dollars that former president Mauricio Macri requested from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 2018.

The economist recalled that in that text Cristina Kirchner stated: "On February 29, 2016 I made the decision to convert all my fixed terms of several million pesos into dollars and deposit them in safe deposit boxes."

Followed by, Prat Gay

complemented his criticism with a table

that the Central Bank prepared on the formation of external assets by human persons between December 17, 2015 and October 27, 2019, that is, during the Macri government. 

"If we also consider that this justified the existence of USD 4.7 million in a safe in the name of his daughter; and we also analyze the amounts in Table 3 of the BCRA report, we conclude that

CFK 'escaped' more dollars than 99% of the natural persons who did it, "he

accused.

In addition, Prat Gay rejected having promoted a "devaluation disaster" by pointing out that the

Alberto Fernández

government

started with the same level of inflation

in the food segment as the Cambiemos administration.

"The same food inflation at the beginning of their mandates, despite the fact that the devaluation (of the OFFICIAL exchange rate) of MM was 5 times greater than that of AF. Don't be fooled with the 'devaluation disaster'" he compared.

Prat Gay thus crossed Cristina Kirchner, who earlier, when giving an investigative statement in the framework of the cause known as "future dollar", pointed to him as the person responsible for the "catastrophic" devaluation.

"The price of the dollar was $ 9.74 when I left the Presidency and the goods and services of the Argentine Republic were at a dollar of $ 9.74. When

the financial genius Prat Gay said no

, it was all at 15 or 16 pesos, which was the price of the blue dollar, all the demons made a devaluation of 40 or 60 percent, catastrophic, "said Cristina Kirchner.
