RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The Levy case, which is investigating corruption in connection with million-dollar aire sales of an Argentine entrepreneur to Venezuela, could be just bait. The Argentine court is investigating the transfer of funds of a Chavista official from Panama to bank accounts in Uruguay with connections in the United States.
Argentine Judge Marcelo Aguinsky sent a letter of request to Uruguay in an attempt to determine if these funds could be related to an alleged payment of bribes for the signing of contracts with Argentine businessman Juan José Levy, who exported products worth US$500 million . . .
