What will happen now with the fortune of Fabián Gutiérrez: the Federal Chamber must define if it maintains an embargo of $ 900 million


Beyond the emotional impact and the arrest for the notebooks, Fabián Gutiérrez was more concerned about the cause of money laundering. In that file, Judge Claudio Bonadio – the same one that had dismissed him in 2011 for illicit enrichment – seized his assets up to $ 900 million. He also prosecuted his mom and half sister. With Gutiérrez’s death, his fortune and his inheritance depend on the future of that cause, where 36 properties, 35 luxury cars, and three boats were identified. As he could Infobae From judicial sources, the Federal Chamber is preparing to resolve appeals. There will be a definition before the end of the month. “(Gutiérrez’s) assets may remain seized“Warned a judicial source. And in the future they could end up being confiscated.

The investigation into Gutiérrez’s assets began in 2017 in the Marcelo Martínez De Giorgi court, due to a complaint by the Financial Information Unit (UIF), and ended up attached to the cause of the bribery notebooks, where the former secretary is processed and sent to oral trial. After Bonadio’s death, the file was returned to Martínez De Giorgi.

That house is the only property that was returned to its current owner, businessman Diego Riestra. According to Gutiérrez’s version, he was a tenant of the previous owner, Germán Rodríguez. Bonadio did not believe him because the house was secured in the name of the former secretary. “The insurance was in the name of Gutiérrez, but he had endorsed it in the name of Rodríguez,” said Rodríguez’s lawyer, Mariano Pinciroli.

The truth is that they all ended up being prosecuted.

After an intense judicial battle, Chamber I of the Federal Chamber – integrated in this case by Pablo Bertuzzi and Leopoldo Bruglia – returned the house to Riestra as a judicial depositary. That businessman now has a dispute with Rodríguez about the balance of the price in dollars.

For Bonadio, a large part of Gutiérrez’s fortune came from the money in the bags collected by Roberto Baratta with the driver Oscar Centeno.

The situation regarding the future of the assets is very complex because her mother, Teresa Amalia García, who would be the natural heir, unless Gutiérrez has left a will, is also being prosecuted. as co-author of the crime of laundering. The woman appears linked in several real estate and commercial operations of her son.

If the case progresses and goes to trial, the assets could end up being seized and auctioned so that the money returns to the State, as was arranged with some of Daniel Muñoz’s properties. In that case, there could be a conflict with the estate, a source in his defense admitted.

Gutiérrez’s mother is not the only direct family member prosecuted in that case. Also appears the couple of his mother, Carlos Mario Cesar Siverino; his half sister, Alejandra Martinovich; and his partner, Matías Lazzaro Raimondo.

“In general, the assets remain guarded as long as other people are prosecuted as co-authors of the act,” explained a judicial source on the immediate future of the fortune of the former presidential secretary. The embargo that Bonadio ordered at the time on Gutiérrez reaches the sum of $ 900 million. In the case of the mother and half sister it is $ 700 million.

Yesterday, a group of deputies from the Civic Coalition asked Judge Martínez de Giorgi to adopt some measure to preserve the assets. But before that the Federal Chamber must express an opinion.

Another of the defendants is the businessman Oscar Nuñez, owner of the hotel “Comercio”, who would have bought this venture from Javier De La Torre. For Bonadio, the operation was a facade to hide that the true owner is the former secretary.

Nuñez never lost contact with Gutiérrez. In fact, last week they crossed messages on the Instagram network, according to what this medium could know. Cristina’s former secretary told him that he was “happy” and that “he had many projects”.
