The hypothetical scandals of Kirchnerism

Joyful, near the abyss. Any foreigner who pauses for a moment in the Argentine political debate would believe that the country has its problems solved and that its society has finally known collective happiness. Although the Government plays a hypocritical fiction of spies and detectives, the truth is that Argentina is a few weeks away from falling into default with the Monetary Fund and the Paris Club. Contrary to what it seems, the country prowls the vicinity of a collective tragedy. He does not have a plan to get out of the mousetrap he is in and, on top of that, he accuses the Fund of making him a plan. It is what the Fund does when they do not bring it a serious proposal.

The government of Alberto Fernandez (and of Cristina Kirchner) does not understand the geometry of power. It needs the opposition to negotiate abroad, but makes a reckless and borderline policy, which blames only four years of Together for Change of all Argentine evils. Peronism, in any of its many versions, spent 25 years in power of the 38 years of democratic life. Only Gerardo Morales placeholder image, governor and president of radicalism, he lent himself to such a distortion of reality; He brought his speech closer to the discourse of the ruling party. Governors should not be presidents of any party, because provincial chiefs are condemned to get along with the federal government, which is the one that distributes public money. Nor does Gerardo Morales need much pressure; He was always more inclined to political and partisan agreements with Peronism. Evidence? Your relationship with Sergio Massa It is very old and Jujuy governs in alliance with the former mayor of Tigre. Division and internism are promoted by Morales’ incredible speech. The most serious radicalism is elsewhere.

The clandestine recording of a meeting of Buenos Aires officials and businessmen at the Buenos Aires headquarters of Banco Provincia unleashed a witch hunt by Christianity and Albertism, now irremediably together. The meeting was held, as a document of business associations and architects of La Plata pointed out, so that the government could listen to the complaints about the mafia practices of the leader of the La Plata construction union Juan Pablo “Pata” Medina. Medina exercised the leadership of the union, as that document says, with a methodology “based on personal aggression, illegal conditions and blockades of works by violent groups.” Everything was resolved with the “Pata Medina price”, which considerably increased the cost of the works. His protection had to be paid. The mob did that since the mob has existed. That is the heart of the problem, not a recording that miraculously appeared two years after Peronism came back to rule. The pretext that this recording was found by chance while intelligence service computers were being cleaned is a childish idea.

It is necessary to stop at two aspects of this supposed scandal. One: the allusion to the Gestapo by the then Minister of Labor in Buenos Aires, Marcelo villegas, which was frivolously repeated by politicians and journalists of any color. Nothing is comparable to the crimes of Nazism. To speak of the Gestapo to speak of anything is to trivialize the cruelest tragedy that humanity has experienced in modern history. The Jewish people are right when they are offended. The other: it is absolutely inexplicable that in that public meeting, because there were businessmen who did not know all the participants, there were three spies from the ex-SIDE. Nobody knows what they were doing there. Not even Macri. If the intelligence services are alone to delve into the filth of politics, as is often the case, they better not exist. They are already a state within a state. It was Maria Eugenia Vidal who sent the spies? Ridiculous. She never had any influence on the spies or the state sewers.

The national government spoke directly with the governors to pressure the attorneys who sympathized with Conte Grand

No one used the intelligence services more to persecute opponents, dissidents and critics than the government of Cristina Kirchner. He had a media holding company (owned by Sergio Szpolski) that was supplied by the smear campaigns ordered by the then SIDE, in charge of the almighty Jaime Stiuso. This journalist was one of the victims and his case reached the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. Alberto Fernandez He denounced, shortly after resigning as Chief of Staff, that his telephone was being tapped by the intelligence services. Did Cristina know? There are no records, but the Justice found in his house, during a raid, folders with reports from the ex-SIDE on activities and telephone conversations of opposition businessmen and politicians. That investigation has long been sleeping an unfair dream in the judge’s office Marcelo Martínez de Giorgi. The size of the hypocrisy is already indescribable.

The legal case initiated by the current head of the intelligence services, Cristina CaamañoIt has no destination because that recording is illegal. It was not authorized by anyone present or ordered by a judge. Its validity is null. It is a typical case of forum shopping (they are looking for the judge who is the closest friend) because it fell into the hands of the federal judge of La Plata Ernest Kreplak, brother of the ideological provincial Minister of Health, Nicolas Kreplak. Neither does the case correspond to the jurisdiction of the Federal Justice of La Plata. The meeting was held in the Capital and, according to existing jurisprudence, matters related to the intelligence service of the federal government must be investigated in the federal courts of the Capital, in Comodoro Py. The inevitable Pata Medina accused the prosecutor Carlos Stornelli because he allegedly delayed a complaint from him about that meeting at Banco Provincia. He named it only to Stornelli, who was never delegated the investigation. He did not mention the three judges who intervened: Maria Eugenia Capuchetti, Julian Ercolini Y Daniel Rafecas. The purpose is evident: to block the entrance door of Comodoro Py so that the file remains in the hands of the judge from La Plata, Kreplak.

Another persecution is happening in parallel: that of the attorney general of La Plata (head of the Buenos Aires prosecutors) Julio Conte Grand, one of the most serious and honest officials of Justice. Conte Grand did not participate in any of the judicial procedures that processed and imprisoned Pata Medina. They were the federal judge of Quilmes Luis Armella and the federal prosecutor Silvia Cavallo those who put him behind bars. Conte Grand is the head of the prosecution in the provincial jurisdiction, not the federal one. But The Government cannot afford that the 2023 elections surprise it with Conte Grand as head of the prosecution in Buenos Aires territory. He built a fantasy story about Conte Grand and even called for his impeachment in the provincial Legislature. If there are no new defections or distractions in Together for Change, that judgment will never occur.

The National Association of Prosecutors came to the aid of Conte Grand. He was also supported by the Council of Attorneys, which brings together all attorneys in the country. But the Vice Minister of Justice, Juan Martin MenaHe then personally took care of lowering some adhesions of provincial attorneys, who belong to the Justice and do not have any dependence on him. The national government spoke directly with the governors to pressure the attorneys who sympathized with Conte Grand. The attorneys of the provinces governed by the most closed Peronism deserted: Formosa, La Rioja, La Pampa and Tucumán. Who practices lawfare? Wasn’t this the government that would not interfere with Justice, according to Alberto Fernández? Mena didn’t even bother to disprove her pressure on judicial officials. Hypocrisy and impudence often walk hand in hand.
