Although Pochetti initially denied her participation in money laundering maneuvers, within a few months and the number of people in her midst who decided to join the repentance regime, she decided that she would also like to provide information in exchange for receiving her freedom. It is believed that the key character is the discovery of 70 million dollars, which, in the opinion of prosecutors and case judges, arose in maneuvers of illegal collection of money from state contractors.
Several of the defenders of the accused, who were related to the washing maneuvers investigated in this section of the case, visited the courts of Comodoro Pi, seeking to look at the materials and find out the statements of Pocketti. She had not yet received an exemption, not because she was denied, but because her official defender, Juan Martin Hermida, had not asked for it. Hermida found it convenient for the investigation to check that the statements and data submitted by Pochetti should be checked and then demand that she return her freedom.
Pochetti's statement is still kept in a strict reservation, and although the case is not yet secret, some of the lawyers of the parties involved could not see it.
The judicial officials who are conducting the investigation intend to find out what is the origin of the money washed by Munoz and what is his current whereabouts. According to court sources, Pochetti gave details on these issues. “He talked about everything since he met Daniel Muñoz before yesterday,” said a judicial source in
NATION after a sealed agreement between Pochetti and Judge Claudio Bonadio to be an accused co-worker.
Another defendant who is concerned about this is Elizabeth Ortiz Munika, a real estate agent from Mar del Plata, whom she declared repentant last November and pointed to Pocketti and lawyer Miguel Angel Plo, who initially advised Muñoz’s widow. Municoy spoke in detail about how the purchase and sale of 16 properties in the United States were carried out. When Munoyka announced his remorse, she was released. But last week she returned to Comodoro Pi more than three times, attentive to what Pockett could say, and worried about Bonadio’s disbelief in what she had already brought. His lawyer is the official defender Gustavo Kollmann, who apologized for defending Pochetti because of the likelihood of having opposite interests between the two defendants.
In this case, Callman also represents Juan Manuel Campillo, the former Minister of Economy of Santa Cruz and the trustee Nestor Kirchner, who after a long wait received the status of repentant. Campillo said in a statement that Isidro Bounin, the former secretary of Cristina Kirchner, called him – on behalf of Pochetti – in 2016 to sell property abroad and erase the money route. Campillo, however, stated that he “hit the wall,” which was Plo, a former lawyer for Pochetti, who was already in charge of this department.
How could you know
NATION thanks to judicial sources, the Pochetti statement was not very different from the statements made by Munika and Campillo regarding the history of these movements, with the exception of a few nuances. The added value that the declaration had was the amount of information it provided about the current purpose of the money it is trying to find.
Plo, who was held in the prison of Ezeiza, does not trust Pochetti’s statement, but he estimates that he "indicated."
