Belize in money laundering scheme originating from Argentina

Belize is being named in an alleged money laundering scheme originating in Argentina and spanning many countries.  Press reports say that a leading Argentinean businessman, Lazaro Baez; his son, Martin Baez; and others were accused of money laundering in recent days.  The allegations surfaced through a television program of a well established journalist who linked the Baez family to the deceased Argentinean President, Nestor Kirchner.  According to a report in the Buenos Aires Herald, “People’s eyes have been opened to a grotesque display of greed and opulence that is financed; it appears, from kickbacks on public work projects. Viewers have also learned how millions of dollars and Euros in cash are flown out of Argentina via Panama, Belize, or some other tax haven, to Switzerland.” Lazaro Baez earlier this week gave press statement denying the allegations against him.

    “Gambling in Casablanca? I’m shocked! Shocked, I say!” [From the classic movie "Casablanca," when the police inspector was being handed his winnings from gambling in rick's Cafe Americain.]

    Belize has made its name in the world, as the place for fugitives to find sanctuary, a place for terrorists to buy passports, and for cartels and now thieving politicians to launder their loot.

    Not the direction most of us wanted our leaders to take us.
