Alberto Fernandez once again questioned Justice, within the framework of a human rights forum. “In 40 years of democracy, the reform of the Judiciary is still pending”, said the President and demanded that he “stop acting as the executing arm of Argentina’s de facto powers”.
also did a single allusion to the situation of Cristina Kirchnerin a enumeration cases of leaders in the region. It was during a speech that read completelya novelty for the president.
“We saw in Bolivia with Evo (Morales), in Brazil with Lula, in Ecuador with dear ex-president Correa, we see in Argentina with Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. We see this in Chile, when the process of Marco Enríquez-Ominami continues over the years and keeps him hostage without the decision of the Justice”, said Fernández.
In the same vein, he added: “Democracies creak in the face of concentrated powers, the escalation of violence and the arrogance of money. We have enough to say for that.”
Meanwhile, about “corporate powers” said they “sink their tentacles in our democracies, they occupy chairs and courts”. “They are the hindrance of the dictatorship. Those who today deny state terrorism are the same ones who want an oppressed and impoverished society,” she added.
In turn, he took the opportunity to question the judges who deal with cases of human rights violations during the military dictatorship. “The judiciary is negligent with the sentences of the genocide. Each repressor tried must serve his sentence in a common prison, he has no benefit, including house arrest,” he said.
Calm in the words of Fernández contrasted with those of the head of the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo Founding Line, Taty Almeida. The human rights leader referred to directly to Cristina Kirchner and asked the judiciary to continue the investigation into the attack against the vice president.
“It cannot be that the judicial party does not continue investigating the attack against our dear vice president“, launched Almeida and asked “demand a power without judicial mafia”.
In addition, he asked for support for the decision of Fernández – “our dear president”, he also said of him – to promote an impeachment process against the Supreme Court.
Not even the Secretary of Human Rights of the Nation, Horace Pietragalla, directly expressed the situation of Cristina Kirchner -convicted of corruption, but without final sentence-. although at least spoke of banno. The field officer limited himself to maintaining that the “Royal Powers” intervene “in ban candidates that can make a reality and a dream come true for each of our compatriots in our country”.
The presidential words were at the forefront of the opening ceremony of the III World Forum on Human Rights at the Kirchner Cultural Center, organized by the International Center for the Promotion of Human Rights (CIPDH Unesco). The event was attended by the former president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, who has generated controversy in these days of bilateral tension.
The forum that Fernández declared opened had been postponed in december for the contagion of the coronavirus by vice-president Cristina Kirchner, who will be a speaker this Tuesday, and then for the festivities of the World Cup.
The presentations take place until this Friday in four spaces simultaneously: Espaço de Memória exESMA; the Kirchner Cultural Center (CCK), the Faculty of Architecture, Urbanism and Design (FADU) and the National Atomic Energy Commission (CNEA).
The days of the forum are widely attended, with the presence of human rights leaders from around the world, 15,000 registrants and 1,200 activities.
The inaugural ceremony was attended by the Nobel Peace Prize and Honorary President of the Forum, Adolfo Perez Esquivel; the director of the CIPDH Unesco, Fernanda Gil Lozano, and the Secretary of Human Rights, camper and recovered grandson Horacio Pietragalla. The head of the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo, Estela de Carlotto, was not present for health reasonsaccording to the head of La Cámpora.
A large part of Fernández’s cabinet was seen in the stands – for example, Chancellor Santiago Cafiero and the Camposista Minister of the Interior, Peter’s Wado, in the front rows, as well as Tristán Bauer, from Culture, and Martín Soria, from Justice. Further back in the CCK ranks, the Albertista piquetero was seen Luis D’Elia.
Alberto Fernández, this Monday; Cristina Kirchner, the next day
Meanwhile, this Tuesday at 5 pm, also at the CCK, the Puebla Group will carry out the activity “Popular Will and Democracy”, which will have the presence of Cristina Kirchner for the closing, in a debate in which they will present, previously, the former -presidents Evo Morales (Bolivia), Correa (Ecuador), José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero (Spain) and Ernesto Samper (Colombia).
The meeting was originally scheduled to take place on Monday, December 12, just days after Cristina Kirchner was sentenced in the Roads case. Ultrakirchnerism wanted the act to become a demonstration of support for the vice president after being sentenced to six years in prison and disqualified from public office.
A few days before the date, it was known that Cristina Kirchner tested positive for Covid-19, so the act was rescheduled for December 19th, one day after the match for the final of the World Cup in Qatar.
But after the Argentine national team reached the final of the championship, and in view of the imminent concentration of people expected in the streets of Buenos Aires in addition to the result of the match, Grupo Puebla decided to postpone the match until March. At the same time, soccer fervor promised to dilute any type of intervention by Cristina Kirchner and the consequent impact of her statements.
At first, it was thought that the event could be an opportunity for Kirchner to show himself in the same sphere as the president. But the distance in your relationship and the new schedules of the event agreed that this would not happen. Alberto Fernández will travel to Chaco this Tuesday.
