therefore I venture to transcribe almost verbatim, without making any comment on my part, extraction of an extensive conversation with someone from the closest, most intimate circle, linked to the so-called Vulture Funds

The counterpart of the atmosphere that exists in Argentina regarding the vulture funds is in New York, no one seems to make special efforts to hide the anger aroused the last steps. Therefore I dare transcribed almost verbatim, without making any comment on my part, extraction of an extended conversation with someone from the inner circle, more intimate, in making decisions, express extreme concepts that are not always supported by the more moderate .

Question: You talk about taking action in language that suggests punishment or revenge, while in Argentina there are those who are in favor of meeting the obligations, it would be more cautious moderate positions and demands to allow an honorable exit, otherwise applying pressure in a difficult and complicated an election year political situation where this issue is sure to be a central part of the campaign, which can force the unpredictable Minister Kicillof to kick the board?

Answer: In Argentina it is blame others for your mistakes, from the beginning we placed as the cause of all evil, puts us on the dock, ours is a business and as such is treated to we are numbers for Argentina is political. There are almost 3 million accounts opened Argentines abroad, not far from the extracted 500 billion dollars, escaped without paying the tax, then they are the ones who pay the piper, do not throw the ball out of bounds Argentina's why I proposed order freezing individual accounts of Argentine citizens abroad as guarantee of payment.

Question: But this does not represent a measure against the state but against individuals also you believe that judges and banks lend to maneuver?

Answer: With respect to the former might, in part, you are right, but remember that a high percentage of these funds are from the state to be evaded taxes, the basis for the request is good, the effects in the Argentina unpredictable. Regarding the second time much has changed, justice is more open to this type of action, we just need to check the agreements with Switzerland, where bank secrecy raises his iron, which was always his strongest capital.

Question: Do you think there will be solution? What do you think the minister Kicillof?

Answer: not up to us, we were always open to solutions that do not lead to more tension with risks to break, cut, problems are not we, they are within the same Argentina. And concerning Kicillof him at all affects us, charge we will charge regardless of how the minister is called, we have the impression that the traditional sectors of power in Argentina were surprised with his appearance, is a paratrooper, is not one of them, has misplaced also has shown them that it is not silly.
