Aníbal Fernández: “I have dollars because I want, I do what I want with my money”
City of Buenos Aires, May 31, 2012
Senator Anibal Fernandez defended his savings in dollars, ensuring that it’s his money he does what he wants.
He assured he has dollars “because he feels like” and because “it is my right, I do what I want with my money,” the official said on the radio.
His words come just days after he affirmed that “Argentina must thinking in pesos,” which he re-confirmed: “It makes sense to start thinking of pesos” in the country.
This clearly seems like a contradiction and when he was asked about the reason why he makes dollar savings and now defends the restrictions for buying the U.S. currency, said: “What matters to you?, It’s my problem, in that time I could do it, I did it, that’s it, I did nothing illegal in my affidavit.”
Fernandez also said he hopes the apology of the CGT secretary general Hugo Moyano, who took statements offensive to him.
“I think (Moyano) is wrong and will have the face to ask for apologies from the case,” he said while considers the unionist a “friend” and feels “great personal affection.”
Moyano had said that Fernandez was a “windbag” and “(Carlos) Menem lackey”.
