Gaston Duzac will not pay, said his lawyer
Julio Plaza Rada, the attorney Gaston Duzac said yesterday, at 14:30, that he waited in front of his computer the arrival of an email with some news on the payment of $ 800,000 that his client would have pay within the deadline established by the COFIEC Bank, however it never came.
According Plaza Rada, the partners of Duzac’s company Scanbuy study a possible solution. Scanbuy was the company that allegedly received $ 800,000 through two transfers ordered by Duzac to COFIEC once Antonio Bunay, former bank president, since he was the one that gave the green light to the loan during his administration.
The money that Duzac received would have left the country to accounts of Juan Hussey, president of Holding Scanbuy Argentina, to United States and Switzerland. By the end of the afternoon, Plaza Rada explained that Scanbuy made a payment proposal to COFIEC, but this did not include payment in cash that was established in the beginning.
Yesterday it was dismissed that Duzac would carry out the payment, which was promised 120 days ago. Now the Bank should implement safeguards that supported that claim to recover their assets. However, it should be noted that warranty of Agricola Mercedes, a company seized by COFIEC does not belong to Duzac.
