Careful to the point in his public comments, closed to complaints about alleged corruption in the government piled up in recent years. Both
, officials and diplomats from the United States, Germany, Spain and Finland crossed information on orders of bribes they faced their companies in Argentina, and in some cases, he claimed the Government, as evidenced in eleven cables obtained confidential WikiLeaks and transferred to The Nation.

irregularities have come to the point that U.S. Ambassador Earl Anthony Wayne said in February 2008, when Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner took less than two months in office, that the level of official corruption detected appeared to be "as bad or worse than [Carlos] Menem, who was reviled and suspected launched the privatization process.

"In the oil sector, two old friends of Nestor Kirchner has won a lot of concessions offered publicly," exemplified Wayne.
alluding to Lazaro Baez and Christopher Lopez, who stayed with 14 of the 15 awarded by Santa Cruz oil in March 2007.
"The bidding rules are designed so that they win," said Washington.

Before, while Kirchner concluded his presidency, Wayne had sent another warning about the practices identified in certain government offices.

"In an almost perverse, when the Argentine government officials are constantly told that" no money to do in Argentina ', perhaps the real message is that, yes, there's money to make, provided you know how, and who - actually "doing business" in Argentina. "

The then German ambassador Rolf Wolf Schumacher, provided another specific experience of what it called "widespread corruption."
explained that the president of a Germanic "went to the Minister of Planning Federal, Julio De Vido, to complain because one of his seconds had asked for a bribe and refused CEO.
Instead of indignation and demand an explanation to your partner or file a criminal complaint or even promise an internal investigation to the executive Teutonic , said Schumacher, "De Vido showed no interest in obtaining the name of the officer involved and, instead, he advised the CEO to film and record the next order of bribe

A Finnish diplomat and a senior official of the English government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero provided similar views on what was observed in Buenos Aires.
Meeting with the then head of the government United States for the Americas, and current ambassador to Brazil, Tom Shannon, the secretary general of the English Presidency, Bernardino Leon, expressed "concern" about the "populist tone" of the Argentine government and its "level of corruption", as arises from the report that sent the American charge in Madrid, Hugo Llorens, in May 2008.

Leon said the Casa Rosada.
said there was "complicated people and movements" around the president Kirchner.
And according Llorens, "suggested that some live in the old adage that" a poor politician is a poor politician ""

"High levels"

Eight months earlier, the charge d'affaires of the Finnish Embassy with jurisdiction in Argentina and Uruguay, Petra Theman said corruption as the reason for the conflict by the paper that opened the diplomatic standoff between Montevideo and Buenos Aires , signed by Botnia.
Theman said the Argentina-and Entre Rios, in particular, had sought to bring the paper into its territory, but that "highly corrupt" local, "compared to the much lower in Uruguay" was one of the factors those who chose to settle investments across the border river. Three

months after the encounter with Theman, when in December 2008, Siemens admitted to the U.S. justice bribery or violation of its accounting records in several countries around the world, including Argentina, Wayne reported to the departments of State, Treasury and Commerce, among other recipients, that the administration "CFK" had not profited from the events to load the inks on Menem and corruption during the 90's.
This "reluctance" Wayne felt he could answer the "widespread suspicion that all is not completely well in the bidding process current-and prior-government."

To leave no doubt on its interpretation of the official silence, he added:
"Official corruption in Argentina it is not for a former government [by Menem] or a wing of the Peronist, and too much attention on the Siemens case may fear [ within the government] that could encourage the public to demand a revision even bigger and broader contracts "signed by Kirchner.

By then, the scandal of the bag with Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson and Claudio Uberti as players returned to the scene with the arrest of four "agents" Venezuelans in Florida.
But unlike the suspicion that the $ 800,000 of the bag was for the campaign President Fernandez de Kirchner that surfaced during the trial in Miami, to Wayne "was probably to an agreement under the table."
The reason, he reasoned, was that "she had a lot of money flowing from various sources in the country, including the government," something, in turn, allowed by election laws. SUSPECTED
