Since the twists and turns of Alberto Fernández’s strategy around the scandal over visits to Quinta de Olivos in strict quarantine, federal prosecutor Ramiro González imputed the President, the first lady Fabiola Yáñez and the other guests to the celebration of July 14, 2020 birthday.
To all this, María Eugenia Vidal came out to cross it very hard to the president along with other leaders of the opposition. The candidate for deputy for Together for Change in the City said that Alberto F. “it runs like a caste with privileges“.
“The President has just been indicted, it is the judge who will decide what to do, not himself“He started his criticism on channel A24.
“It seems to me to be a situation where, from the outset, teverything was done wrong. A violation of the law that he himself had dictated was committed, he hid it for a year and this appeared for a request for access to public information“Vidal recapitulated.
Then he criticized that the President had said that “it had not happened” and, after that denial, he later blamed his wife. “Then he said that the responsibility was his, but there was no crime because he had not harmed anyone. And now he wants to impose his own punishment on us, which is to donate half of your salary, “continued the candidate.
“At some point are you going to ask forgiveness without justifications And is he going to submit to justice for real? “, he wondered. And he complained:” Again, they run like a caste, as if there were privileges for them, a double standard“.
Vidal emphasized the rest of the citizens, the thousands who have a file open today judicial for the same. “Are they going to tell the judge ‘I’m going to donate half of my salary, I’m going to come twice a week to I don’t know where’ or do they wait for what the Justice decides? What does the rower do, the one that came from Mar del Plata? “, he said, ironic.
More opposition critics
“Following this soap opera that we are watching, unfortunately I was not surprised. It is a pattern of behavior … We should be surprised, but not surprising“, said resigned, in the same program, the Buenosairean head of government, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta.
One of the first to publish a comment had been deputy Mario Negri, president of the JxC interblock in Congress and a candidate for national senator for Córdoba. “President was logically imputed in the cause of #OlivosGate. But his caradurismo has no limits. He pretends to be judge and party and sentence was self-dictated: 4 half salaries. He wants to fix so much pain for the Argentines with 630,000 pesos. Miserable“Negri sentenced.
For his part, the Cordovan legislator, Luis Juez, assured that “the example has to come from top to bottom.” “If you have a President who presents a writing made by Dylan (the presidential dog) … only a dog could write a writing of those characteristics “, he ironized with his usual tone.
“He establishes the investigation mechanism and the penalty that corresponds to him. It is an act of supine immorality“, he concluded, coinciding with Vidal.
Another opponent who gave his opinion was the lawyer Yamil santoro, a candidate for Buenos Aires legislator on the list headed by Ricardo López Murphy. The liberal is the complainant in Justice of the violation of the presidential DNU that prohibited not only social encounters, but the circulation of all those people who were not fulfilling essential tasks for public health.
“Our work,” he posted on Twitter and attached the news. Then he recalled: “We were the ones who criminally denounced #OlivosGate, #VacunatorioVip and so many others corruption facts. So that these causes do not go unpunished, to add strength against corrupt politicians, we need your vote. “
While the investigation is ongoing, Judge Sebastián Casanello must determine whether to call them for an investigation or not. In the last week, the prosecution accepted the spontaneous presentation of several of the now accused. Fabiola Yañez is represented by Juan Pablo Fioribello and his partner Mariano Lizardo, who in turn defend Sofia Pacchi, Santiago Basavilbaso, Emmanuel López and Fernando Consagra.
“Imagine if each person who commits a crime decides his own punishment. President, you are a lawyer and a professor of Criminal Law. It is not like this. It is not the penalty that you decide, it is the one that corresponds to you for the crime you committed, “published Patricia Bullrich, president of PRO, on his networks.
“I have just read the defense presented by the president for the allegations of the meeting in Olivos. Denies responsibility criminal who decreed and expressed through the national chain that his non-compliance would bring criminal consequences, “commented Macrista deputy Waldo Wolff on the networks.
One of those who defended the President with a criticism of the press was the lawyer Alejandro Rúa, who defended Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner in the case of cover-up for the memorandum of understanding with Iran. “That invention for journalism he imputed“he posted on Twitter.
The President asked to be dismissed
“I come to file an exception for lack of action due to manifest non-existence of typicity, in accordance with what will be developed, so that, after the relevant hearing to the other party, the present one is made and, consequently, I dictate my dismissal “, maintains the writing of the head of State presented in Justice.
Fernández argued in response to his request that “the conduct involved does not fit into any substantive criminal legal figure whatsoever, consequently declaring that the process does not affect my good name and honor that I enjoy.”
And he added: “I come to raise lto comprehensive reparation of the damage based on the attributed facts, “in reference to his participation in the first lady’s birthday party when he himself had signed a DNU that prohibited all types of social encounters, as well as the circulation of those people who were not considered essential.
