Argentina’s former minister of planning and public investment, Julio de Vido, sought to distance himself on Tuesday from the country’s investigation into alleged overpayments for LNG imports.

A federal judge is investigating around 500 cargoes imported between 2008 and 2015 and looking into possible overpayments of up to $7 billion.

De Vido refused to testify on Tuesday and left only a letter detailing his responsibilities as head of state-run agency Enarsa, which oversees Argentina’s LNG imports, La Nación reported.
