The opinion of the IPJ first indicates that the firm fails to comply with a final judgment of the Justice of Río Negro, which ordered free movement to Lake Escondido.

Second, he mentions that Hidden Lake is a simulated society that has no activity at all.



The text of the IGJ, the control body of commercial companies in Argentina, states that through offshore companies in the Bahamas, Lewis hides that he is the sole owner of the 12,000 hectares in Patagonia.

The investigation began last March after a group of demonstrators in the march for the sovereignty of Lake Escondido saw their attempt to reach the site obstructed last February.

The head of the IGJ, Ricardo Nissen, asked the Commercial Justice of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (CABA) -because Hidden Lake is located in a law firm on Avenida del Libertador, in the Argentine capital- to act , initially, ordering the intervention of society.
