The Justice Argentina asks a new report to Switzerland on Menem bank accounts
October 24, 2012
The Federal Oral Court No. 1 asked for the third time that the Swiss Justice provides information on whether there are bank accounts in that country in the name of Carlos Menem and his family around a court case pending trial.
Judicial sources reported that it was a order by trial prosecutor Marcelo Vera Agüero.
Previously the Swiss courts had responded, “Mr. Carlos Saul Menem does not have or hasn’t had accounts in Switzerland that have been movements of funds during the period of the presidential mandate. More precisely it has not been identified any such account.”
Menem is on trial instance and is accused by the alleged offenses of malicious omission of assets, misrepresentation and breach of the duties of public officials, which provide for a penalty of up to six years in prison.
