Prosecutor Carolina Rosiglio asked the Committee on Freedom and Expression of the House to explain how the inflation rates reported each month are made.
In a complaint lodged by Commerce Secretary Guillermo Moreno, the prosecutor requested to submit reports ”about the making of average rates,” and to provide the “decision or administrative act by which this decision adopted to make these publications, and all that other evidence of where it arisesfrom what data averages the rates given on a monthly basis. “
In your request, Rosiglio wrote: “Without prejudice to the embed tests after the complaint, and carry out all those other measures which Your Lordship deems appropriate to clarify these facts, the public prosecutor asks in time (. ..) it is acknowledged to the complainant to give evidence to ratify and incorporate to the complaint.”
The order comes to collation of cases initiated by the Secretary of Commerce against the consultants Melconian, Santangelo and Ferreres.
