The Case of the Stuffed Suitcase

El alcance del escándalo sobre el "maletinazo" continúa en aumento. Ahora, entrevista para la radio pública nacional canadiense, CBC, y breve artículo online:

Alejandro Antonini helped a fellow passenger carry a heavy suitcase through airport customs in Argentina.

Inside were nearly $800,000 in U.S. greenbacks.

Maybe he knew. Maybe he didn't.

But when authorities pressured Antonini, he high-tailed it out of there, spilling a tale of secret flights, cash drops and worse.

In his book, The Secrets Of The Suitcase, journalist Hugo Alconada alleges the money was an effort by the a foreign country to influence the election of Argentine president Cristina Kirchner.
She succeeded her husband as president in 2007.

And the source of the cash? The secret of the suitcase? Alconada says the evidence points to Kirchner's neighbour: Venezuela's Hugo Chavez.
