Kirchnerism tries to explain that the corruption cases that occurred between 2003 and 2015 that were revealed – some of them reached an oral and public trial – are the product of a political-judicial-media persecution that they called “lawfare”. The account indicates that there was no corruption but that the cases were armed without evidence and were intended to tarnish the image of a “national and popular” government rejected by the concentrated powers.

In this story it is difficult to fit the case of the sudden and illicit enrichment of Daniel Munoz, an obscure public employee who died in March 2016 whose only recorded income was those obtained as a private secretary of Nestor and Cristina Kirchner.

As a consequence of what was revealed in the Cuadernos Case, Muñoz was identified as the primary recipient of the bags full of dollars in which the bribes that the businessmen of various sectors of the economy paid to the Kirchner government officials were loaded. Muñoz received bags that were addressed to their bosses. Even so, in his role as minor intermediary in the delivery of bribes Muñoz amassed a fortune (detected) of about 70 million dollars.

The Kirchner accountant, Alejandro Manzanares He confessed to having set up partnerships for Muñoz to launder money from corruption. Part of that fortune built on illegality is on the islands of Turks and Caicos where the former civil servant acquired land facing the sea to build a tourist complex. These lands are valued at 30 million dollars that the Argentine State tries to recover.

The chapter of the Muñoz bag, derived from the Case Notebooks, was in the hands of the judge Claudio Bonadio until his death in February of last year. Since then the court 11 the judge Marcelo Martínez De Giorgi.

On December 23, judge Martínez de Giorgi ordered the seizure of several properties that – it was shown – had bought the Muñoz gang in different parts of Argentina. In a resolution to which you agreed Infobae He pointed out that the assets of the illicit association that Muñoz led were being seized, because they could be sold before a possible conviction arrives. The judge said that “It should be borne in mind that, based on the economic modality of the crimes investigated here, there is a well-founded suspicion that those named dispose of the assets that make up their patrimony, prior to the issuance of a possible sentence. In addition, as regards the assets of the accused and related companies, which were acquired in some cases in parallel and in others after those events, it is possible to maintain that they were acquired with the proceeds of the crime, for which they are being processed “. The Cuadernos case and that of the Muñoz gang have already been sent to oral and public trial.

In the resolution by which he seized and immobilized 26 assets, Martínez De Giorgi made a list with three groups of properties that Muñoz’s gang bought. In the first, the assets that had already been confiscated were noted. There, 28 properties were listed, including garages, a department in Puerto Madero, a house in Mar de las Pampas, and other properties in Capital and in Santa Cruz, the promised land of Kirchnerism.

The second group of 26 assets is made up of those that were identified in recent times according to the reports sent to the court by the different registries of real estate and motor vehicles. Those are the embargoed and on which the prohibition to innovate is provided.

The third group is that of the assets that were incorporated into the assets of the defendants during the period in which it is suspected that they laundered corruption money but that in that same period were transferred to third parties. These assets reach the number of 33. In that group there are cars, land in Mar del Plata, apartments in Capital, cabins in Lago Puelo, fifteen apartments in a Vicente López tower, rooms in Santa Cruz and a property on Néstor Kirchner street from Río Gallegos.

Muñoz’s gang bought property in the United States. He chose the cities of Miami and New York to invest the illegal money. Then they were sold and the money obtained had different destinations. With some of what they made they bought goods in the country and some traveled to Turks and Caicos. Everything was done by Muñoz, his front men and businessmen who contributed to the money laundering structure of whoever was the collector of the bribery bags that according to the complaints were taken to where the Kirchners lived.
