During her opening address to the Legislative Assembly, the President of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez, made harsh criticism of the judiciary, which she accused of not respecting the Constitution. In addition, the president described the allegation of the deceased prosecutor Alberto Nisman by concealing of terrorists as a “scandal” and “an embarrassment.”
After the recent court judgment that dismisses the complaint of Nisman, Fernandez said that this demand with “no evidence” would be “a scandal, an embarrassment” and a “disgrace,” especially since weeks before its submission, the prosecutor had drafted documents supportting the work of the Executive branch in clarification of the attack.
“To what Nisman do I believe? To the one that complaints without evidence or the Nisman who lifts all my actions at the United Nations, raising my speeches?,” said the President.
She also criticized the judiciary, which she referred as the “judicial party.” “We must be independent of political power, concentrated economic power, to what the judiciary will never be independent is of the Constitution (…).”
The President finally asked Israel that the former ambassador Itzhak Aviran (1993-2000) declares in the framework of the AMIA case and explains why he months ago told the media that his country already killed the terrorists.
