Parrilli answers Servini's queries in ephedrine case

The General Presidency secretary, Oscar Parrilli, has responded to the enquiries of federal judge María Servini de Cubría with a detailed report on telephone calls from Government House, as part of an investigation into ephedrine trafficking in Argentina.

The official gave a press conference this afternoon explaining the provenance of certain telephone numbers from the presidential residence, which appeared in a file held by Servini with links to alleged drug traffickers.

"Every post has been rapidly answered for," Parrilli told reporter.

The government released the information following Servini's revelations on Friday related to the investigation into ex-Sedronar chief José 'Pochi' Granero, who is suspected of importing ephedrine for later sale to Mexican cartels.

"We have an overlap between certain calls from Government House with some drug traffickers. We want to know who used those numbers," the judge had told radio Mitre.

In response, Parrilli maintained that Servini's declarations were "inappropriate", and asserted that "no telephone in Government House has a direct connection."

"Some media outlets have tried to cast a shadow," the secretary fired, and added that some of the lines in the judge's report "have never belonged to the presidency" while others had been cancelled due to technical issues.
