In a series of tweets, the president spoke about the scandal that broke out a few days ago due to the leaking of a video from June 2017 that shows former Labor Minister of Buenos Aires, Marcelo Villegas, talking about the creation of a Gestapo (official secret police of Nazi Germany) to eliminate some unions.

After the revelation of this material, Fernandez ordered comptroller from the Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI, in Spanish), Cristina Caamaño, to file a complaint to investigate the possible commission of a crime.

“The Federal Justice is investigating a complaint that I have ordered AFI to file in order to investigate actions committed by the previous administration, which promoted illegal espionage and several judicial persecutions against trade unionists and opposition members,” the president wrote on Twitter.

He also added that, due to the seriousness of these actions and the existence of serious, precise and concordant signs of a presumed illegal persecution method, the different accountabilities of the offenders and accomplices must be investigated and resolved.

The president said that he has ordered AFI to put the intelligence service in favor of national interests. It is doing it at present. Ending those illegal habits deployed by the intelligence of the Macri administration reassesses the rule of law and democratic coexistence.
