Argentina’s top anti-corruption official is alleging that the country’s former president used “dirty money” to buy more than 60 properties in Miami – money that belongs to the Argentinian people.

Laura Alonso, who runs Argentina’s anti-corruption agency, made the claim on national TV as Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who was president from 2007 to 2015, is running for Argentina’s Senate, according to the Miami Herald. An attorney for Fernández de Kirchner told the Herald that the allegations are false.

Last year, a top aide to her husband and predecessor, Néstor Kirchner, was investigated for his ties to nearly $70 million worth of real estate in South Florida and New York. That investigation, part of the Panama Papers, only found 16 properties had ties to the aide, including condos at Icon Brickell, the St. Regis, Turnberry Ocean Colony, Apogee Beach and 900 Biscayne.

Argentina’s Anti-Corruption Office confirmed that it is investigating 60 properties in Miami, but the investigation “still has to be proven,” a spokesperson told the newspaper. [Miami Herald]Katherine Kallergis
