Argentine President Mauricio Macri said Tuesday that he accepts the recent measures taken by the justice of his country to determine if he has committed irregularities with two overseas companies.

Macri told a press conference that he is "available" to Federal Judge Sebastian Casanello, who has ordered an investigation into the companies.

"I will make all the necessary arrangements to confirm what I said is true," said the president, who maintains he did not commit irregularities.

He also said that justice has to work "independently" in this case and also in the various investigations into his predecessor, Cristina Fernandez (2007-2015), for alleged illicit enrichment, forgery and defrauding the state.

The president also urged prosecutors "to be precise in investigations and statements shared with Argentina, which is neededto restore credibility and confidence."

Casanello seeks to determine whether Macri used the two companies for any crimes, including tax evasion.

Macri appears as a board member of the company Fleg Trading LTD, established in the Bahamas. The link was discovered when millions of documents of the Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca was leaked to the media.

The president admitted its existence but said it was a family business of which he was not a shareholder and from which he did not receive any income.

The firm was registered in Bahamas in the late 1990s.

According to Macri, it was intended to make investments in Brazil, but these were not made and in 2009 the company was dissolved.

Macri has also been linked to the Panama company Kagemusha, S.A.
