After this announcement, one of the first to speak was the former Minister of Finance, Lea Giménez, who requested a clarification from Minister Oscar Llamosas. “Is what Wiens says true? Is the Treasury working on a bill to buy debts from people in Infoconf? Please clarify,” she stated.
Giménez warned that it is a “dangerous and populist” proposal which can bring serious consequences to the treasury and the financial sector.
