Police raids Lázaro Báez offices
The Federal Police raided into the offices of “Austral Construcciones” in the city of Buenos Aires, a company owned by Lázaro Báez, followed an impeachment filed by the Civic Coalition party lawmakers Elisa Carrió and Fernando Sanchez.
The procedure was ordered by the tax court Judge Javier López Biscayart who is investigating Báez under the charges of tax evasion and money laundering.
According to Noticias Argentinas news agency, the police personnel looked for documentation related to the case.
Báez, a public work tycoon, presented last Tuesday an affidavit before the Federal Court of the Santa Cruz province to push back an investigation in which he was accused of giving millions of pesos to former and late President Néstor Kirchner and current head of state Cristina Fernández de Kirchner to rent their hotels in the southern province.
