Former President Mauricio Macri will return to the country next Tuesday 19 and will appear to testify on Wednesday 20 in the Federal Court of Dolores before Judge Martín Bava, who summoned him to an investigatory statement in the case investigating the alleged illegal espionage of the relatives of the tragedy of the submarine ARA San Juan, in which all 44 crew members died.
“The 19th arrives and the 20th is presented,” confirmed yesterday the candidate for national deputy for Juntos and current secretary of Mobilization of the PRO, Hernán Lombardi.
The surrogate federal judge of Dolores, Martín Bava, rescheduled for October 20 the summons to investigate former President Mauricio Macri, who did not appear at the hearing called for last Thursday in the case in which the alleged espionage of the victims is being investigated. relatives of the crew members of the submarine Ara San Juan, which sank in November 2017.
The investigation should have been postponed because the former president has been in the United States since before the summons was known and, as revealed in a letter addressed to the judge by the president of PRO Patricia Bullrich, it was not in Mauricio Macri’s plans to return to the country before the end of the month.

On his stay in the United States, Lombardi explained: “Macri went to receive an award in New York. He went to present his book in Miami. He is inaugurating a new chair in economics that is starting next year and has to go to the FIFA Foundation in Qatar. He does it in the light of the whole world ”.
