Argentinian lawyer rules out theory of perpetrator’s disability

Buenos Aires, Jun 27 (Prensa Latina) Marcos Aldazabal, one of Cristina Fernandez's lawyers, asserted today that the perpetrator of the assassination attempt on the former Argentine president knows what he did and its consequences.

In statements to AM750 radio station, Aldazabal explained that Fernando Sabag’s statement yesterday was dismantled ‘the narrative that it was a madman’ who tried to assassinate the then Vice President on September 1, 2022.

He is a person who knows what he is saying.

He has a large vocabulary and answered all the questions. He understood everything and is very aware of what he did.

He seems intelligent and focused, he said.

He was quite explicit in showing how the judicial persecution against Fernandez -driven by some of the media that led him to think that she was the cause of all the country’s problems and that she had to be killed, he added.

On the other hand, he warned that very serious events occurred after the attack, such as the elimination of the mobile phone data of those involved.

The relationship of deputy Gerardo Milman to the event is also to be determined.

On the first day of the trial concerning the attack, Sabag asserted: “I wanted to kill Cristina and she (Brenda Uliarte) wanted me to die.

He also said that his girlfriend (Uliarte) ‘wanted to be more of a spectator of the moment than a participant’. I fired once, not twice, and I didn’t reload the gun because I was intercepted.

I had no moment of exit or escape from the plan. The distance was a safe distance to be able to get there.

I was 30 centimeters away, he said.
