federal prosecutor Federico Delgado warned this Monday that “the most difficult” of the trial for the so-called Vialidad case, for which the vice president Cristina Kirchner is charged and the prosecution in charge of Diego Luciani and Sergio Mola asked for 12 years in prison, “It is that the conditions are not given for the judges to sentence in a relative peace”.
In full day in which the defense of the former president in charge of Carlos Beraldi Y Ary Llernovay began his release, Delgado assured that the central “drama” of this trial is that “It’s not over, but the majority of the population considers it over.”
“That is traumatic for a democracy. Because the trial is unfolding. In this context, imagine the effort that the judges will have to make to make us see that their decision is supported by evidence. Everything that passes is half contaminated“, He launched.
Meanwhile, Delgado relativized the tone used by the prosecutors, more media than legal, at the time of making their plea: “A trial is like a dramatization, each one uses the tools they consider most interesting to convince the judges.”
However, he criticized the fact that the figure of “illicit association” to target alleged crimes committed during the presidency of Cristina Kirchner.
“In 2001 the Supreme Court made a decision on the sale of weapons in the Menem government. It resolved that a democratically elected government cannot be an illicit association. There is a tension between the weight of a Court ruling and the practice of justice”.
Thin In addition, he was forceful when referring to the fear of partiality that the accused alleged regarding the links of the prosecution with the magistrates and officials of the previous government, among which Maurico Macri himself stands out.
“Citizens have to be absolutely certain that it will be impartial. That is why the laws speak of fear to impartiality. There are plenty of procedural mechanisms for suspicion to dissipate,” she said.
“Since we are born we are subjects of law. One is the legal status of innocence. What needs to be done to destroy it? There has to be an absolute certainty. There can be no doubt. This protection is so strong that even if a judge says that he has no doubts, I always have the request that other judges review that, “he warned, finally, linking the ruling that will be known for this cause with this situation denounced by the vice president.
