Former Argentinean president charged for alleged espionage


Former Argentinean president charged for alleged espionage

Buenos Aires, Nov 1 (Prensa Latina) Federal prosecutor Franco Picardi charged former Argentine President Mauricio Macri for allegedly being responsible for a systematic plan of illegal espionage during his government (2015-2019), revealed today newspaper Pagina 12.

According to the newspaper, the former president was accused of monitoring, through the Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI), people like the then Senator Cristina Fernandez and her sister Florencia Macri.

Picardi requested the elevation to oral and public trial of the case, which includes inquiries about acts of that kind carried out in 2018 around the home of the current vice president and the Instituto Patria.

The revealed maneuvers are neither exceptional nor isolated.

They integrate a set of many other criminal cases, whose objects stick to the investigation of intelligence actions deployed by AFI agents between 2016 and 2019, he pointed out.

What they have in common, a priori, is the suspicion of intervention of the highest authorities of the Agency, within the framework of planning, coordination and execution of tasks prohibited by Law 25,520, with points of contact that refer to victims or targets, he added.

Likewise, he indicated that the illegal use of intelligence tools as part of systematic plans orchestrated from the state apparatus itself could be demonstrated.
