"I laundered US$77 million for Lázaro (Báez). When I spoke about US$60 million he said: 'There's US$17 million missing'", Fariña told the prime-time AnimalesSueltos programme on Tuesday. Fariña had appeared on Mirta Legrand's weekend lunch programme.
In reference to the Kirchner family's alleged former frontman Lázaro Báez, Fariña added: "Lázaro is a guy with US$250 million in properties. It's not fiction, that money exists", he added.
Fariña rejected the notion that investigators could find hoarded cash, claiming the people who manage the alleged dirty money "move it around and there are many far-off estancias". "The money has to be here (in Argentina)", he added.
Appearing to wanting to clear his name, Fariña took the opportunity to target members of the Kirchner family and former AFIP tax bureau chief Ricardo Echegaray.
Asked if he regretted his involvement in alleged corruption, Fariña said: "I didn't know how to handle it, I was overcome with ambition".
The former 'delivery boy' explained that "the subhuman conditions" of Ezeiza penitentiary were why he decided to seek a plea bargain in the corruption investigations that have piled up against former president Fernández de Kirchner and officials of her and her late husband's presidencies.
