Cristina Fernandez criticized ruling in case of espionage

Buenos Aires, Dec 23 (Prensa Latina) Argentinian Vice President Cristina Fernandez on Thursday criticized the ruling of the Federal Chamber of Criminal Cassation referring a lawsuit against Judge Marcelo D'Alessio and district attorney Carlos Stornelli to a lower court.

On Wednesday, the Chamber ruled that the trial, which was being held at a court of the capital’s locality of Dolores, had to be continued in Comodoro Py, a decision that could drag another case that is investigating Mauricio Macri, also for alleged espionage.

To justify their ruling, the judges of the Chamber said that “after a long period of time, it is necessary to order the progress of this case, defining competency in order to prevent the failure of an investigation into serious events and in which subjects with roles in state power structures or those related to them are involved.”

The ruling of the Courthouse II of the Federal Chamber of Cassation could have an impact on the other two cases of espionage tried in the locality of Dolores, one of them against Macri for alleged espionage of the relatives of the 44 crew members of the ARA San Juan submarine from the Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI, in Spanish) during his administration.

For several weeks, Macri’s legal team has insisted that his case be tried at the Comodoro Py courthouses. The former president also requested to have judge of Dolores, Martin Bava, removed from the case by claiming that he is biased and has already prejudged him, and also called him incompetent.

On Wednesday, the vice president also criticized another two Comodoro Py judges for benefiting the former head of State and other former AFI officials in the scandal for following the relatives of the victims of the submarine.
