Argentina’s Macri Asks Business Executives to Report Government Corruption

BUENOS AIRES – President Mauricio Macri asked the heads of Argentina’s largest companies on Thursday to report it if they encounter “mafioso behavior” on the part of government officials.

“I don’t plan to mortgage my government nor the future of the Argentines to defend anyone acting outside the law,” he said to inaugurate the annual meeting of the Argentine Business Association.

What builds “real stability and the possibly to plan and invest long-term” are rules of the game that are “clear and the same for all,” Macri said.

His government has seen the enactment of legislation that offers sentence reductions to people charged with corruption who turn state’s evidence and testify against other defendants.

That option has been embraced by several of the business people arrested since Aug. 1 on charges they gave millions of dollars in bribes to members of the 2003-2007 administration of the late Nestor Kirchner and the 2007-2015 government of his wife, Cristina Fernandez.

In an appearance before a judge on Monday in connection with the case, Fernandez submitted a written statement denying all the charges and blamed her situation on a judicial persecution driven by the right-wing Macri government.
