Within the framework of the case “Oil Fuels“, the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation revoked the acquittal to the businessmen Cristóbal López and Fabián De Sousa. Following an appeal presented by the Public Prosecutor’s Office and with the signature of all the ministers of the Supreme Court, the measure annulled what was ruled by the Federal Chamber of Criminal Cassation in December 2021.

The accusation against the two involved focused on the withholding of amounts that had to be paid to the Federal Administration of Public Revenue (AFIP) for him liquid fuel tax.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court concluded that the Chamber of Cassation had arbitrarily decided the hypotheses of the case. Therefore, López and De Sousa will face charges for fraud against public administrationgiven that the revocation of the acquittal reopened the judicial process against him.

This will lead to the continuation of the judicial process against López and De Sousa, in addition to the fact that the case will have new stages of evaluationafter the Attorney General of the Nation, Eduardo Casalissued a harsh ruling in March of this year to revoke the acquittals.

In any case, the court I do not accept all grievances presented, given that rejected the lifting of precautionary measures and also comprehensive reparation against Ricardo Echegarayformer head of the AFIP and who was sentenced to four years and eight months in prison for having granted a illegitimate authorization to the owners of the Indalo Group. That endorsement was what caused the damage to the national State, given that the oil company avoided paying more than $5.6 billion to the treasury.

The “Oil Fuels” case had considerable public and media attention due to the high-profile implications and magnitude of the fiscal fraud. The two businessmen had been accused of not transferring to the AFIP the taxes collected from consumers on the sale of fuel, using those funds instead to finance other operations for the company.

In this new panorama, the Court’s decision highlighted the tensions and debates surrounding judicial interpretation and application of the law in these cases.
