Triangulation of imports: how much can the Government collect if it denounces the evaders

Serge Massa revealed during his first press conference that “there are more than 13 thousand triangulated import operations of 722 companies who bought products at a price, passed it through another destination and brought it overcharged to Argentina”. In this context, he advanced that “a registry will be opened for 60 days for companies to make a rectification“.

Otherwise, he warned that they are going to “do the complaints before the Argentine justice of those who do not come to clarify or rectify”, but I will also do the same “before the money laundering unit of the United Statessince banks from that country were used and therefore the headquarters of the financial domicile determines jurisdiction”.

When asked about this point, the former vice president of JP Morgan, Hernan Arbizuexplained by AM750 that in total, through the control of these import triangulation maneuvers, the Government can get to collect “close to 1,000 million dollars”.

For this reason, the specialist “celebrated” the announcement. “The explanation of why to file the complaints in the United States was very clear. It is seen in the FIFA case. The bribes went through US banks, with which already given jurisdiction to intervene”, he explained.

“For me it is key. From this much more is collected in taxes and in dollars. We are talking about money laundering, it would be very difficult not to start an investigation. Massa spoke of 722 companies and 13 thousand operations. I have more confidence in the United States Justice than in Argentina on this issue “he added.

Finally, he argued that “another successful case in this same direction was that of the United States against the Swiss banks.” “There was a complaint for evasion. In these situations, giving evidence of money laundering, I don’t see what arguments the United States justice could use to not take the complaints”.
