Apart from the opposition, Alberto Fernández’s repentance for the scandal of the celebration of the birthday of the first lady Fabiola Yañez did not reach him and finally a group of 15 national deputies that make up the Juntos por el Cambio interblock presented the request for impeachment to the President of the Nation.
What until Thursday seemed an option on the part of the opposition, this Friday was confirmed through a draft resolution that entered the National Congress that asks: “Promote Political Trial against the President of the Nation, Dr. Don Alberto Fernandez, for poor performance and eventual crimes in the exercise of his functions, in accordance with the provisions of article 53 and concordant of the National Constitution. “
Among the arguments of the opposition deputies, whose first signature is that of the radical Mario Negri, president of the interblock, they indicate: “Free inter-provincial movement was prohibited, with stranded inside and outside the country; the students had their schools closed; the elderly They could not be visited, children could not go out, family and social gatherings were forbidden, businesses were closed, funerals and meetings were forbidden. In the shadow of these decrees, cases of institutional violence were denounced, merchants melted, the sick recovered or died in absolute solitude. “
And they continue: “We Argentines have witnessed heartbreaking scenes of dehumanization worthy of a fiction. The justification was strict compliance with current emergency regulations. Argentina, with the international Formosa scandal, was denounced before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights , for the severe violations produced in the emergency. All of this, far from Resolution 1/2020 of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, which recalled the jurisprudence of the High Court on the matter. “

“Recently, some photos taken at the Olivos residence show that there was a parallel reality, where the rules were not applied. The situation unmasks the hypocrisy of the President. By then, a strict quarantine was in force that prohibited social gatherings and limited the circulation of essentials, “remarked the opposition deputies in the draft request for impeachment.
And they add: “He, who orders to fulfill what he does not fulfill or enforce to his narrow circle in the place where he lives, shows an inequality before the law that offends a republican country. This drop overflowed the camel’s back. public investiture. The most elementary republican dignity and public ethics imposed by the National Constitution in its articles 1, 16 and 36 have been unknown. “
The text addressed to the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Sergio Massa, states: “Exemplarity is a value that allows behaviors to be carried out and repeated because the authority that creates them complies with them. What better example than the one that gives the citizen an honest and law-abiding ruler? What better incentive for the suffering citizen overwhelmed and frightened by an unknown pandemic and with an uncertain end than to know that the President of the Nation unrestrictedly complies with the norm that he created to protect him? “
“None of this happened. The word of the President has been devalued for a long time, the behaviors that are shown today add to that discredit and discredit. In the case at hand, there is also a judicial investigation underway. The Public Prosecutor’s Office is investigating whether a crime has been committed. If it turns out, it will be necessary to add another cause “, he concludes.
