The former Minister of Production, Matias Kulfas, declared in court this Friday, June 10. In his statement, he denied any knowledge of possible crimes related to the construction of the Vaca Muerta gas pipeline after a series of accusations he made against Vice President Cristina Kirchner.
The former minister was summoned by the federal judge Daniel Rafecas to give an investigative statement for his statements regarding alleged irregularities in the tender for the Néstor Kirchner gas pipeline in Vaca Muerta, which were included in his letter of resignation to the national cabinet on June 6.
What Kulfas said in court
In a two-hour exhibition, and with the presence of Prosecutor Stornelli, Kulfas repeatedly denied any knowledge of possible crimes related to the construction of Vaca Muerta gas pipeline.
He clarified that his expressions, both “off the record” and in public, were nothing more than “Political and public policy discrepancies and discussions”in the face of what he considered an unjustified attack on the portfolio he was leading on behalf of Vice President Cristina Kirchner.
