High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The scandal is also known as valijagate, maletagate and maletingate (following the -gate construction and the Spanish word maleta or valija for suitcase or briefcase). The maletinazo, valijagate, or "suitcase scandal" was a 2007 scandal involving Venezuela and Argentina, souring friendship between the countries. The scandal began when Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson, a Venezuelan-US entrepreneur, arrived in Argentina on a private flight hired by Argentine and Venezuelan state officials carrying US$800,000 in cash which he failed to declare. The word comes from maletin (the Spanish word for suitcase or briefcase) and the suffix -azo which implies intensity or magnitude. Initially, Argentine judge Marta Novatti took the case but she quickly resigned from the investigation. Argentine Minister of Planning, Julio de Vido, declared that Uberti was the "political responsible for that flight"; Uberti was fired. The Argentine government fired one of the state officials who was on the plane, the head of Road Deal Controls, Claudio Uberti.
