Ultra K MP Vanesa Silley keeps braking in the Council of the Magistracy of the Nation a complaint for poor performance and misconduct against federal judge Luis Rodriguez for having given him a controversial release from prison to the trade unionist Omar “Caballo” Suárez in the megacause of obstruction of the waterways, extortion and coercion.
The accusation was made by the shipping businessman Máximo Padilla, owner of the Petro Tank firm, and the main complainant of the trade unionist “preferred” of Vice President Cristina Kirchner.
Is is the only one of the ten complaints that Judge Rodríguez had that remains open in the Council of the Magistracy. The rest were closed with the support of the K majority, including the complaint for the statements of Carolina Pochetti, the widow of Daniel Muñoz, the former secretary of the Kirchners, who claimed that her husband had paid “ten million dollars” to a Law firm and Judge Rodríguez. The criminal complaint for this case was dismissed.
Rodríguez is the same judge who arbitrarily processed the journalist from Clarion Daniel Santoro as an alleged participant in an extortion attempt by Marcelo D’Alessio of the customs agent Gabriel Traficante.
It happens that in 2017 the “Caballo” Suárez He was a prisoner in the Marcos Paz prison by order of the then federal judge Rodolfo Canicoba Corral and the prosecutor Gerardo Pollicita. Then, the daughter of union member María Lorena Suárez denounced that “Through a third party they offered to take it out in exchange for $ 500,000.”
But Canicoba and the prosecutor went on vacation and Rodríguez was subrogated to the court, while the “Horse” he was shown on TV handcuffed and limping in the corridors of Comodoro Py.
Then, on December 29, 2017 Rodríguez ordered for “health problems” the house arrest of the trade unionist with an electronic anklet to circulate up to 100 kilometers. He did so despite the fact that the deputy prosecutor Carlos Rívolo He opposed to the measure arguing that the last medical examination did not show serious health problems, except hemorrhoids.
When the judicial fair in January ended, Padilla’s lawyer, Alejandro Sánchez Kalbermatten appealed, arguing that it was not true that the union member had serious health problems and that his client’s life was in danger. Padilla lives 20 kilometers away from the “Caballo” chalet in San Isidro.
He also recalled that there was procedural risks and that even before his arrest, SOMU’s computer systems had been stolen to destroy evidence of financial mismanagement when he was intervened by current Juntos por el Cambio legislator Gladys Gonzalez. The Buenos Aires federal chamber revoked the measure.
Padilla denounced before the Magistrature the conduct of Judge Rodríguez “does nothing more than increase record statistics that the official throws in his short life as a federal judge ”.
“Behind the decision of the natural judge, Canicoba del Corral, and the prosecutor Pollicita decided to give home arrest to Suárez who has accumulated more than ten cases in the different federal courts, all of them with some degree of danger and / or magnitude already be it for the sums of money to the detriment of the state, as the union or social work of SOMU and the great damage to “private entrepreneurs and individuals,” said Padilla in his complaint to the Magistracy.
He stressed that Judge Rodríguez hidden the ruling in which he ordered the release and “failed to comply with the publicity provided for in article 1 of Law 25,856, which certainly demonstrates and confirms a high degree of suspicion in his hasty actions.”
“Judge Rodríguez’s decision aggravated me, It harmed me in the proceedings of the process and also put my life and those of my family at risk reason for which in time and form I appealed the measure, “added the complainant.
Although the federal chamber reversed Rodríguez’s pronouncement, Padilla stressed, “this in no way purged the reckless conduct of a judge that I consider corrupt, but I join the campaign of denunciations so much so that as an Argentine we should not continue to suffer this type of illicitness ”. Rodriguez “It is not very different from the figure of Norberto Oyarbide”, projection.
So, Padilla asked the immediate apartmentor Rodríguez so that “he does not act the same in other causes.”
As a counterattack, the “Horse” initiated him a cause for alleged extortion to Padilla who ended up being dismissed.
The complainant Padilla reproached Rodríguez for “ambiguity in the procedural times, clearly dynamic in relation to third-party defendants with a passive attitude and lack of respect for others. ”And he asked to analyze this case“ in light of a set of acts in other cases ”and to audit his court”.
In May 2019, the then president of the Magistrature, Ricardo Recondo sent the complaint to the discipline commission and it was up to the ultra K deputy Vanesa Silley to instruct her.
According to sources from the Magistracy consulted by Clarion, “Has the case stopped” in tune with Rodríguez’s ties to Kirchnerism, especially since his political godfather, judicial operator Javier Fernández, reconciled with Vice President Cristina Kirchner.
On May 10, 2019, Rodríguez appeared spontaneously and reminded the Magistracy that although the federal chamber reversed its controversial decision, the federal oral court 4 – which now has the case – granted the request for house arrest. And he asked for the “immediate dismissal” of Padilla’s complaint.
