Is Wellisch this year’s Antonini?

This article by Argentine newspaper Clarín puts a name to the recent bribery scandal in Argentina: Roberto Wellisch, CEO of Palmat International, the supposed Miami intermediary in the middle of the bribery embroglio.

Gustavo Coronel’s blog has some background on Wellisch here, and here. Apparently, he’s a citizen of Argentina, Venezuela and the U.S. Here is some more background on the man.

On a side note, if the legality of a company’s dealings was directly correlated with the quality of the content in its website, the good people of Palmat would be tried and convicted.
