After being denounced before the Justice for breaching the quarantine when celebrating her birthday with 70 guests, Elisa Carrió defended herself: “For the first time in my life I felt ‘I want to leave this country’. It made me very sad for our Nation and for myself, “she said, and said that he cried when he heard the news.
The public display of your party ended up playing a trick on the leader of the Civic Coalition and founder of Cambiemos. The lawyer Alejandro Sánchez Kalbermatten denounced her before the Buenos Aires federal justice for failing to comply with the restriction measures provided in the framework of the covid-19 pandemic, when on December 26, 2020 she celebrated her 64 years at her house in Exaltación de la Cruz with 70 guests (all leaders and former officials of the macrista alliance) and up to a mariachi group. Kalbermatten’s complaint also involves former president Mauricio Macri, for not complying with the mandatory preventive isolation that he had to keep after returning from his extensive trip to Europe.
“If someone strictly complied with the quarantine dictated by the government, it was me,” Carrió said. “I do not want to live in the lie that is lived in this country, they have damaged me a lot but yesterday I cried and I did not cry because I had complied with everything,” he told Radio Miter.
“Clearly, as it emerges from the journalistic information gathered, health regulations were grossly violated by the hostess and by his assistants, who incidentally, were legally and morally more obliged than any citizen to set an example, since many of them hold relevant positions in the public service, “says Kalbermatten’s writing.
In a statement, the Civic Coalition denied the “wrong or malicious comments that were spread” about Carrió’s birthday. He maintains that “this meeting was held outdoor, in respect of all health protocols and preventive measures, which was published in due course by the different media. At no time was he hidden from the population, in addition to having been informed to the local authorities. It was also required previous negative test to all the guests before admission to prevent possible infections, given that Carrió herself is an older adult with comorbidities ”. They are the same arguments used by Carrió this Saturday to justify the massive celebration.
