Hebe de Bonafini: “We haven’t had bank accounts in the exterior for 5 years”
City of Buenos Aires, September 9, 2011
The head of the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo said she and her organization do not have bank accounts abroad, as Sergio Schoklender had accused. She also denied that they “had sent funds to the campaign of the Kirchnerism.” ”The government is the one that helps us, not we the government,” she said.
“There are many contradictions in everything (Schoklender) says, as if we were left with two million euros, and the cars and airplanes are his,” the head of Mothers said .
“Sergio deserves no response,” she told a local radio, “but people do deserve to know how things went,” she added.
De Bonafini said she is sure that no charges against her are true. She exemplified with the investigation of the experts who determined that her signature had been forged on a contract Meldorek. “I knew I had not signed it, although sometimes one can sign anything without reading, I did not sign anything because I do not know, I did not see it before,” she said.
The figure on Human Rights spoke also about the allegations that about she having foreign accounts with millions of dollars. She explained that “in Asturias” were placed “the contributions of governors, mayors, agencies and partners,” growing to “$ 400 000 around the 84 ‘or 95′.”
At that, she said that “all accounts are closed, we haven’t had bank accounts in the exterior [of the country] for some time now, almost five years.”
