Argentina's tax men want US data

2015-06-01 08:44

Buenos Aires - Argentina tax officials say they're seeking U.S. information about alleged corruption involving FIFA.

Tax chief Ricardo Echegaray tells La Once Diez radio that his agency has asked the U.S. for "all the documentation that permits us to quantify" Argentina's tax losses.

And he's not ruling out a probe of possible tax evasion involving the late Julio Grondona, who allegedly took a $15 million bribe while head of Argentina's Football Association.

Echegaray said Sunday he's asked for an embargo of the goods of three Argentines named in the U.S. indictments. Alejandro Burzaco and brothers Hugo and Mariano Jinkis are accused of paying more than $100 million in bribes for media and commercial rights to soccer tournaments.
