On September 1, 2022, a man identified as Fernando Sabag pointed a gun at the head of the former head of State near her home in the Recoleta neighborhood in Buenos Aires, but the gun did not go off.
Days later his girlfriend, Brenda Uliarte, and another suspect (Gabriel Carrizo) were arrested.
On several occasions, Fernandez’s attorneys, Jose Manuel Ubeira and Marcos Aldazabal, requested further investigations and pointed out that Carrizo played a key role in the attack and could therefore be considered a co-perpetrator and direct participant in the crime.
After appeals filed by the representatives of the vice-president, the Federal Court of Buenos Aires demanded Judge Maria Eugenia Capuchetti to subpoena Carrizo again and to take into account the evidence that she dismissed.
Among the elements that support the extension of his statement are messages sent by the suspects over his cell phone such as: ‘Remember this date,’ ‘She is already dead,’ ‘You don’t know what we did with this,’ ‘Generate fear so that the Government knows who they are messing with.’
