Hey there !
BUENOS AIRES (Dow Jones)--Argentina's tax agency has again raided the offices of leading multinational grain exporting companies, seeking evidence to back up charges that the companies cheated the government out of about 150 million pesos ($38 million) in taxes.
Agents of the national tax agency Afip raided 117 offices of 48 different exporters amid charges that they created shadow companies to hide grain sales, Afip said in a press release Tuesday.
A source close to the matter said that Bunge Ltd. (BG), Cargill Inc., Nidera Handelscompagnie B.V., and Noble Group Ltd. (N21.SG) were involved in the investigation. Spokesmen from the companies could not immediately be reached for contact, but both Bunge and Cargill have recently issued press releases denying earlier charges of tax evasion.


I take it that ADM was not raided ... are we even suspect?
This is not the first raid ...
