The complaint of the Federal Intelligence Agency (AFI) on the setting up of cases against union leaders during the management of Maria Eugenia Vidal in the province of Buenos Aires could have novelties next week. The head of the body, Cristina Caamaño, did not rule out that they appear more videos from “Judicial table” where there was talk of a “Gestapo” syndical.
Speaking to AM 750, Caamaño called the case “Vidal’s mafia.” In addition to the current national deputy, the former Buenos Aires Minister of Labor, Marcelo Villegas; the current mayor of La Plata, Julio Garro; the Procurator of the Province, Julio Conte Grand; and other former officials and businessmen who participated in a meeting in June 2017 at the Buenos Aires offices of Banco Provincia.
When asked about the images that were disseminated in all the media, the Agency’s auditor said: “In principle, they told me that those cameras were from the AFI, which the AFI placed them.” In this way, the official denied Vidal, who last week at La Nación + spoke about it for the first time and said that the footage had been captured “illegally.”
It was from this that Caamano provided a detail that keeps the former governor in suspense. And it is the “technical question” of the cameras. “These (cameras) do not have cables, but a memory inside, which is the one that precisely records,” said the official, and elaborated: “Now, the technical person for that is on vacation and returns this week. So, there I am going to have exactly the technical part, which I am going to have to report to the judge ”. When asked if something new could arise, she said: “Anything can happen because that is a Pandora’s box.”
The imputation was extended to the participants of the “judicial table”
The federal prosecutor of La Plata Ana Russo this Monday extended the accusation by the “judicial table” to all its participants. The ruling includes, without naming her, former governor Vidal, in response to a request from Judge Ernesto Kreplak. The opinion signed by Russo explains with respect to Vidal that he has already ruled by attributing, in a generic way, those who “are co-perpetrators or participants” in the crimes under investigation, as published NA.
Faced with this, the prosecutor requested a series of test measures that include cross-linking of calls between fixed telephone lines and cell phones among all those attending the meeting, in which they discussed how to prosecute trade unionists from Buenos Aires, especially to the leader of the Uocra-La Plata Juan Pablo ‘Pata’ Medina.
